A 1,600x additional scan permitted greater area assessment to detect ferruginous bodies. We performed core analysis on the various types of coated structures.
We analyzed fibrous particulates as well as the core of the ferruginous bodies by selected area diffraction and X-ray energy dispersive analysis (EDAX-NX-2 analyzer; EDAX, Inc., Mahwah, NJ).
Occasionally we found in the presence of the diffuse interstitial fibrosis one or more ferruginous bodies that were morphologically consistent with asbestos bodies (Figure 2).
Applying the classification scheme used earlier (3) to distinguish types of ferruginous bodies from foundry workers, we found that the digested material contained seven Type B ferruginous bodies (a core consisting at the light microscopy level of a thin black filament).
An additional lower magnification scan at 1,600x over 7.02 [mm.sup.2] yielded six elongated ferruginous bodies. The respective core of each was comprised of anthophyllite (Figure 8), tremolite, crystalline silica, one organic fiber (Figure 9), a fiber rich in magnesium aluminum silicates (MgAlSi) and one totally coated core (unidentifiable).
