In the beginning everything was developed by attempt and mistakes, all appliances were hand made till the discovery of X-Rays and the Roentgenography.

Accordingly, in order for the clinician to apply the new technique with the intelligence, he must realize that many biologic factors form the fundamental criteria of its application.

Soldering of auxiliaries has been eliminated, as well as the heat treating of wires. Archie Brusse, and those inventive changes were first presented inin Oklahoma.
