A synchrotron radiation X-ray fluorescence microprobe analysis technique was used to scan a slice of the femoral head from its periphery to its center, via cartilage, compact, and spongy zones in order to determine the distribution and the way inorganic substances are lost in bone tissue. The sample preparation and experimental apparatus are described in detail. The quantitative computerized tomography of elemental distribution, such as Ca, P, K, Fe, Zn, Sr, and Pb in bone slice tissue, including cartilage, substantial compact, and substantial spongy, is investigated. Combined with the correlation among P, K, Zn, Sr, and Ca, the route of loss of minerals and the physiological functions of some metal elements in bone are also discussed.
