Abstract
In an attempt to determine the validity of xeroradiography as a diagnostic tool in the detection of osteonecrosis, studies were made in divers affected by the condition and then compared with similar projections made with conventional roentgenographic techniques. The results suggest that xeroradiography is not sufficiently useful to justify the greater radiation exposure inherent to its use, although more evidence is required in order to achieve definite evaluation.
