Abstract
We have developed and applied clinically a low cost electronic radiographic system for rapid intervention in neurosurgical procedures. The apparatus is operated by means of a single push-button control which pulses the x-ray tube, and simultaneously stores an individual television field on a magnetic disc, producing a frozen image which is instantly displayed on a small television monitor. During surgery this system has benefitted the neurosurgeon by enabling him to record and instantly display electronic radio-graphs for more rapid intervention with reduced risk of mortality and morbidity.
