A Mobile X-Ray Unit.—
A mobile x-ray unit was installed in Lee County recently for use in a special study of the incidence of tuberculosis in a restricted representative rural area, newspapers report. A gasoline motor-generator set on a twowheeled trailer provides adequate 110-volt current to operate the machine. The truck, a one and one-half ton model, was specially designed and equipped to provide a complete x-ray and clinic set-up, it was stated. A dark-room is built in the left front corner of the closed truck body. Portable x-ray and clinic equipment, transformer stand, cassette holder, folding tables and other equipment may be removed to allow full use of the built-in seats for twelve persons. The tuberculosis study has been in progress since May 1, 1932, and has been made possible by the Rockefeller Foundation through the state department of health.
