Fig. 164.—Injected Bloodvessels of Kidnev. 350 A Manual of Practical Medical Electricity also open to observation, and these observations shouldbe used in conjunction with the ordinary clinical signs.The fact that a tumour can be observed at every pointof its visible margin to pulsate is unquestionably a valuableaid in the diagnosis of aneurism, and screen work is ofmore value than photograph^/ in such cases. Foreign bodies, placed in the middle line between thevertebral columm and the sternum, will often escapeobservation, owing to their shadows falling into theshadows of the vertebral column and sternum, unless therays be passed obhquely through the body. In the Dun-fermline shooting case, where a bullet entered at about thelevel of the fourth rib, the photographs which were takenin Glasgow were misleading, and led the operator to sup-pose that the bullet was in the liver ; later on the patientwas examined by me with a screen, and, though no traceof the bullet, either in the liver
