            iii     A Constant Potential unit particularly designed for special
                    techniques where accurate control of exposures at very
                    high switching frequencies is required.
                    The control panel now incorporates a computer-type tube-loading
                    device and an additional low-value mAs range to facilitate
                    cine radiography in conjunction with Image Intensifier systems.

Ten years ago AEI installed, at the Hammersmith Hospital, the first linear accelerator in the world
to be used for X-ray therapy. It is still in constant use. Since 1953 linear accelerators have become a
feature of advanced megavoltage therapy departments throughout the world and AEI has
supplied more than any other manufacturer.
Taking advantage of the most recent advances in accelerator technology and retaining the essential
isocentric geometry of the earlier machines, AEI has now produced a much more compact equipment -
the Series III - which permits unhindered rotation of the X-ray head about the patient through more
than 360°. Beam energies are preset at the factory to 5 or 6 MeV as required
Two Series III machines have already been ordered; one for the Queensland Radium Institute,
Brisbane, Australia and the other for the Sahlgrenska Hospital, Sweden.

The Vickers unit is proving its worth in leading hospitals; its overall simplicity of design, ease of operation and reliability set
new standards for the wider use of linear accelerators.
It is the only machine which combines all these features:
Value-Design simplification, adoption of recent technical advances and the elimination of unnecessary facilities have produced
the lowest cost linear accelerator available.
Simplicity of Operation - To facilitate rapid and accurate set-up by a single operator, all controls for this function are
conveniently grouped on the X-ray head, thus enabling the maximum number of patients to be treated with the minimum
of staff.
 Reduced Maintenance - T h e degree of maintenance required has been greatly reduced by the development of a sealed-off
tube which dispenses with the need for vacuum equipment, by the replacement of thermionic valves with solid state amplifiers,
and by robust construction in an all steel welded gantry.
                                                                                                              XXV




Ease of Installation - Installation is a relatively simple operation and building requirements are not
extensive, since all the major equipment is accommodated within the gantry. No separate apparatus
room is necessary, and the set is shipped and installed as an integral unit.
Complementary to the advanced technical features of the set itself every consideration has been
given to likely developments in its use. The Vickers unit is the only design which enables a high
pressure oxygen chamber to be incorporated in place of the couch.

   RANGE OF
   TILTING X-RAY
   TABLES
SIEMENS ISOSCOPE
   A new, superbly engineered table with a smooth variable
   speed control via a central electro-hydraulic drive, the Iso-
   scope has a table top which moves both in the longitudinal
   and transverse directions. The fully automatic, ceiling-free
   spot film device does not require insert frames and is
   designed for tubes up to 200 kV in the undercouch position.
                                             M.O.H. Item 4/IS

SIEMENS SIERESCOPE
   A well proven motor-driven table of advanced design, the
   Sierescope has two tilting speeds and longitudinal shift of the
   table top. The fully automatic spot film device is ceiling sus-
   pended, and a rotary cradle can be provided to facilitate
   rotation of patients in all positions, including Trendelenburg.
   Tubes up to 150 kV may be accommodated in the under-
   couch position.

SIEMENS KLINOGRAPH
   A new versatile, general-purpose unit with motor drive, the
   Klinograph incorporates a robust, hand-operated spot film
   device, which can be moved to give an unobstructed table
   top. It can also be fitted with a movable table top and
   cradle if required. Tubes up to 150 kV may be accommo-
   dated in the undercouch position.

Special features
    *The SIERESCOPE, KLINOGRAPH and ISOSCOPE are available
   as single or two-tube models. Whilst all three types can be
   used with a floor-to-ceiling tube column, the Klinograph
   and Isoscope can also be used with a ceiling mounted tube
   suspension as they are ceiling-free.
   *The spot film device design on all models is arranged
   to enable new or existing image intensifiers with or
   without television to be used.

                              The very successful C.T.S. Ceiling Tube Support is often
                              to be preferred to a floor mounted tubestand, and is
                              particularly useful when one tube is required to serve
                              two tables or one table and a Universal Bucky Stand as
