Excerpt from Practical X Ray Work

In trying to give a description of X ray work of use to medical men I encounter two principal difficulties. The first is that some, but not all, are well acquainted with the element of electrical science, and the second is that the use of a Crookes' tube cannot be learned by reading a book.

As the majority of English medical practitioners hold the joint qualification of the Royal Colleges of Physicians and Surgeons, I have taken as my starting-point the syllabus of the first examination of the Conjoint Board. Those gentlemen who are skilled electricians, and who may read this book, will therefore pardon my including explanations of electrical terms. At the same time, the explanations given will be of little use to any who have not mastered the elements of the science to the extent required for the examination just mentioned.

As to the second difficulty, I have done my best to set forth, in the chapter on "Tubes," some account of the vagaries of these pieces of apparatus. If the reader should wish to learn more about them he must do so practically.
