Since Chalker et al. (1985) I have been unable to find any more
work related to x-ray densitometry of corals. I would appreciate if
anybody could send me references to any articles dealing with this topic
post 1985. Also, does anybody know why this method for measuring coral
skeletal density has not been used in research? Or has it?

Try the following articles. David Barnes of the AIMS in Townsville was
working rather a lot with x-ray densitometry.

effects of calix architecture and other factors on retrieval of density
information from coral skeletons. J.-EXP.-MAR.-BIOL.-ECOL. 1990. vol. 137,
