    Ever since the discovery of the X-ray-by Roentgen in 1895, there has been an intensive quest for faster, more economical methods of presenting visually the composite transmitted X-ray pattern. Until the past few years, only two practical methods have been in wide use—the film and the fluoroscopic screen, the latter being less sensitive than the former. In recent years, several electronic devices have been developed which are additional advancements toward this goal. It is the purpose of this paper to discuss the underlying principles of these systems in order that the potentialities for future applications can be evaluated.
