ABSTRACT
The article discusses a new type of roll-film changer for large field angiography and its clinical applications. The source-image distance is 2 m in length to cover a wider field and to minimize radiographical blur. The film size is 35.4 x 90 cm, sufficient to cover the pelvis and both legs or the thorax and abdomen in average-sized Japanese patients. A differential screen and an equalized filter are adopted to obtain density as uniform as possible in the abdomen down to the calf. The large field-size covered the wide area from the clavicle down to the knee.
