My first thoughts looking at it are that it may be a projector for rolls of xray film (typically chest xrays, or 100mm camera film from fluoroscopic exposures) to facilitate their "reading".

Mass xray screenings used 100mm square film, as did the cameras attached to fluoroscopic xray equipment until the mid 80's.

It is not inconceivable that there were instances where the film was wider/narrower or in roll format for ease of handling (think 35mm/120mm roll film, only bigger).

Hello radsafer's

I "won" this item and would like tips as to what it is before I arrives this Friday.  It was made by the United States Radium Corporation in 1972.


or cut and paste into the address line.

Has anyone ever seen something like this?
