Abstract

PRINCIPLES OF ROENTGEN TECHNIC

The localization of intra-ocular foreign bodies is a rather special department within the general field of roentgenology and involves many problems which are of great importance to both the ophthalmologist and the roentgenologist. The ophthalmologist is far too prone to accept without question the indicated position of a foreign body on a chart showing the localization which has been handed to him from the roentgenologic department. This chart represents as accurately as possible within the scope of the method used and the experience of the roentgenologist the position of the foreign body in relation to the ocular structures. There are, however, so many possible errors that it is to be highly recommended that the ophthalmologist thoroughly familiarize himself with the principles involved and the methods used, so that he may follow the procedure intelligently and not accept the data on the localization chart at face value.
