    Abstract

    A million-volt portable X-ray unit of small dimensions and light weight is described. Its principal features are: the multisection X-ray tube, the coreless resonance transformer, and the Freon gas insulation. It permits radiography from ten to several hundred times faster than with older equipment through thick masses of steel ranging from ¼ in. to 8 in., producing a radiographic definition of from 1 to 2 per cent.
