This was the first commercially produced outfit for cineradiography in Britain and was designed to Rusell Reynolds' (1880-1964) specifications. Reynolds was a doctor who had earlier worked with his father during 1896-1897 on an amateur X-ray set. In the 1960s the invention of the electronic image amplifier enabled cineradiography to be incorporated into the routine work of X-ray departments, and soon the watching and recording of moving X-ray images on television monitors became simple and routine.
