Description:
A Marilyn Monroe Chest X-Ray, 1954. Appearing to be a vintage 1954-era copy of the original that was likely made for another doctor's use; image depicts the star's sternum, ribcage, and outline of her breasts as she rests her hands on her hips, a somewhat blurred notation in the upper left corner reads "Cedars of Lebanon Hospital / Drs. E. Freedman and S. Finck / DiMaggio Marilyn / 11-10-54."
17" x 14"

Interestingly, Julien's Auctions offered a different copy of this same X-ray in June 2010 and its hammer price was $25,000.
