ster·e·o·ra·di·og·ra·phy

(ster'ē-ō-rā'dē-og'ră-fē),

stereoradiography

[-ra′dē·og′rəfē]
Etymology: Gk, stereos + L, radiare, to emit rays; Gk, graphein, to record
a technique for producing radiographs that give a three-dimensional view of an internal body structure. The stereoradiographs are produced by combining two separate x-ray films, each made from a slightly different angle without movement of the body part being x-rayed. The developed films are then viewed through a device that allows the two images to be perceived as one.
