Abstract
For the past year or so we have been working on the problem of locating brain tumors with ordinary hospital equipment and without the introduction of contrast material. Eighteen radiographs are taken at 10° angles around the head, they are read by a densitometer, and the numerical method of Kacmarz (1) is used to produce horizontal cross sections at any desired level. In principle this is also the method used by the EMI scanner, but of course the use of ordinary hospital equipment changes the practical character of the problem considerably. So far we have completed three experiments, two of which will be described in detail along with some of the problems that were en-countered.
