The American Quarterly of Roentgenology (Vol. III, No. 2, July, 1911)

Hickey, P. M. (editor)

n.p. The American Roentgen Ray Society, 1911.

First printing. 62 pp., 6 x 9 inches. Side-stapled and glued into printed card covers. Illustrated with photographs, and with five gelatin silver stereograph cards (corners tucked into diagonal slits in captioned sheets). Covers soiled, and a slight curl near spine, but internally very good. Item #4127

Two articles in this issue are devoted to the special technique of stereoradiography, the first of which covers the technique and reading of stereoradiographs, and the other the physics and optics. The former is illustrated with five removable examples.

Stereoscopic radiology began just a few years after Roentgen produced the first radiographic images in 1895, and retained limited use until falling off precipitously in the 1930s (due to both the difficulties of producing the images, and the growing understanding of the danger of doubling the radiation dose).

An early and uncommon publication, with rather scarce stereoscopic radiographic images.

Price: $250.00
