By standard methods it is difficult to detect less than a marked change in skeletal mass, and the fine structure of bone is not readily apparent on the usual films. Recently Meema and Schatz (1) have obtained better visualization of the fine detail of bone by adapting the techniques of mammography to the hand film. The fine-grained industrial X-ray film provides superior resolution, making it
