Department of Geology and Geophysics, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI 53706, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 96:13709-13. 1999..These results suggest that variations of natural calcium isotope ratios in tissues may be useful for assessing the calcium and mineral balance of organisms without introducing isotopic tracers...

Department of Geology and Geophysics, University of Wisconsin Madison, Madison, WI 53706, USA
Clin Chem 53:1155-8. 2007..If so, isotopic analysis of natural urine or blood calcium could be used to monitor short-term changes in bone mineral balance that cannot be detected with other techniques...
