Methods were studied for making organs permanently opaque to x-rays by making observations of organ displacement in normal unanesthetized animals during periods of deceleration, using a Micronex X-ray machine. It was found that the walls of organs can be made permanently opaque to x-rays by injecting Thorotrast or a finely divided BaS04 suspension Micropaque into the walls hypodermically. The general health and physiological state of the animal after the injection remained unchanged.
