X-ray cinematographic study of the movement of the jaw joints
This image is a film still from an x-ray movie by the physician Robert Janker (1894 - 1964). He was a pioneer in the development of the Röntgenkinematographie (X-ray cinematography) in the late 1930s and produced educational X-ray films, some of them even with sound.
