Research Facts
Anode face was at an angle of 20° (early tubes were at 45°); this allowed a heavy load to be used, but focal spot sixe did not have to be increased, as geometrically focal spot size appeared small, due to the angle of the anode face.

Research Facts
Used for treatment by directing an invisible X-ray beam at the patient; used in skiagraphy; used in radiotherapy; used in conjunction with imaging equipment for diagnosis; used in conjunction with a fluoroscope to reveal the insides of patients bodies; especially good at showing the bones; the charge from the electrostatic generating machine excited the gas in the tube and then it produced X-rays; see file for more.
