To maximize the tissue imaged, the light bar the range of values available.

Increasing recognition is being accorded the need of including radiologic anatomy in the medical curriculum. Many medical schools have already made this advance and have allotted two or more semesters to radiologic anatomy, which is taught not only by lantern slides and charts but by roentgenograms and by fluoroscopic demonstrations. The accurate recognition of pathologic conditions in the roentgenogram or on the fluoroscopic screen depends on thorough familiarity with the recognition of the normal and especially the borderlines of the normal and the beginnings of the pathologic.
