The correct time of exposure and proper development.

Comparison of the Radiographic and clinical findings.

In dentistry, with its field sharply confined to a small and superficial area, we are able to apply a standard technique; whereas radiography, as it is practised by the medical profession, with deepseated areas for investigation, presents far greater difficulties. It is our good fortune to escape many, if not all of these discouragements, because the object is placed next to the plate.

In advocating the acquirement of an exact technique in this work, I do so in the belief that our efforts will be more successful and dependable.

In order that a dental radiograph, or any radiograph for that matter, may contain the elements for a correct interpretation, it must be taken by one fully conversant with the results desired. In other words, the operator must have knowledge of the clinical phase in order to apply the technique necessary to demonstrate the condition, if present in the radiograph.

Radiographs often present a good gross picture, but fail in the detail necessary for a finer definition.

This is apparent in many cases of abscesses, and more particularly in necrosed teeth. That much of this distortion may be minimized, or absolutely prevented, an exact technique will be demonstrated, which has in a very substantial manner proven satisfactory.

In all radiographic work, for that matter in all picture work, the first desideratum is immobility of the patient. This
