      There has been much recent progress in reducing radiation hazards and in increasing the quality of roentgenograms. New techniques associated with this progress have created problems directly related to angulating the x-ray machine. A device which solves some of the problems concerned with angulation and centering of the x-ray beam has been described in this article.
