Zwirner used cathode beam oscillograph to assess mobility of tooth on rats.
The population of the "phases" (the number of protons entering this "phase") [P.sub.a], [P.sub.b], and [P.sub.c] was calculated from the contribution to the initial amplitude of the signal by extrapolating the lines to the zero line (the line passing through the point of excitation of the oscillograph).
