Kondrashov and Rothenberg (Appl. Radiat. Isot. 55 (2001) 799) have published "a substantial correction for calculating estimates of lead concentration and uncertainty for in vivo X-ray fluorescent bone analysis with Cd-109 source" (sic). Our paper shows that their correction fails to consider two important points that render it (i) a correction to a superseded method and (ii) of limited effect. Also, their approach to a "crude" estimate produces measurement uncertainties that are implausibly small. In order that they not be propagated in the literature, our paper also corrects several misstatements and errors in Kondrashov and Rothenberg.
