Research Facts
This artefact was used for stereoscopic viewing of x rays. Looking into the mirrors in the central eye piece one would see the X ray images reflected from the pillars on each end of the table. Once the distance between the pillars and eye piece was adjusted the two images would converge into one giving a three dimensional effect to the radiographs.
