Diagnostic Stands and Accessories
In order to perform an X-ray examination, whether it be by means of screening or radiographs, the X-ray tube must be mounted in some way or another. This is usually accomplished by means of a fixture known as a stand. The stand may be combined with an X-ray table and various accessories. Diagnostic stands should be built in such a way that they facilitate the examination and, therefore, when they are being constructed, the many medical requirements should be taken into account. There are many stands which vary greatly in construction from the simplest type (a single column) to the most elaborate equipment, which satisfies the high demands in modern hospitals. It would exceed the scope of this book to enter into detailed descriptions, and we shall limit the following discussion to the more important general features.
