    In-vivo K-X-ray fluorescence (KXRF) was applied to the noninvasive measurement of the lead levels in the midtibial diaphysis. Blood and soil lead concentrations were also determined. The mean bone and blood lead levels were +/ parts per million and +/ micromoles per liter, respectively. X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) Description. Subsurface contaminant plumes are usually characterized using a drilling rig to install monitoring and groundwater samples are collected and sent to a laboratory for analysis. This traditional approach is slow and costly. In its most common use, an X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) sensor is employed with a cone penetrometer for real-time, in-situ field.
