In introducing the subject of the use of Rontgen
Rays in intra-thoracic diseases, the best plan to me
seems to be to aggregate some of the more authoritative or striking statements in the literature as to
apparatus, as to the general utility of the rays in
this aspect of medicine and as to special,, points relating to radiography of the thorax.
Rontgen Rays are a most worthy ally of inspection, palpation, percussion and auscultation.
