Paper Abstract

Clinical radiology has until recent years been confined to morphologic examinations. Questions relating to a patient's health have been answered by visual examinations of the patient's x-ray films. A priori knowledge of altered physiology, injury, etc., combined with the radiologist's skills has usually been sufficient to enable the physician to make an intelligent diagnosis. However, within the past few years new and innovative techniques of diagnosis involving the electronic analysis of video recorded fluoroscopy have evolved. These techniques have been grouped under the general heading of videodensitometry. (Ref. 1-9) They allow the radiologist to directly assess and measure physiologic parameters from the televised roentgen image. By utilizing information that is normally available during routine roentgenographic examinations, the patient is not exposed to any additional radiation hazard.
