The biplane marker and reorientation device, a field-hospital X ray, which localizes slugs and fragments in wounded men in two planes, vertical and horizontal, and makes it possible for surgery to be performed without moving the patient, has been designed by engineers of Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company, according to announcement by Colonel Alfred A. de Lorimier, commandant of the Army's school of roentgenology. The device not only locates foreign bodies but marks the wounded man with iodine to guide the surgeon in making an accurate incision.
