Radiographic Fetal Diagnosis

  • N. Thorne Griscom

Abstract

Using X rays in pregnancy is a little like treating mange in mules with arsenic (Ershov, 1956); the job often gets done, but there is always the fear of an excess. Furthermore, newer methods [in mangy mules, nicotine sulfate (Siegmund, 1973) in fetal diagnosis, ultrasound] have progressively limited the uses of the older approaches. Nevertheless, even in this sophisticated era, the only route to the desired fetal diagnostic information is sometimes via properly planned roentgenograms.
