This is the preferred test for routine Aluminium screening. It is specially useful for monitoring Aluminium toxicity in patients undergoing dialysis. It also helps to monitor metallic prosthetic implant ware. Aluminium overload leads to accumulation in brain and bone. Brain deposition has been implicated as a cause of dialysis dementia.
Patients should refrain from taking antacids and aluminium containing medications prior to specimen collection. If Gadolinium or Iodine containing contrast media has been administered, specimen should not be collected for 96 hours.
