Example text

This language has also become the standard in medical publications. 8 Radiographs of the hand were commonly made in the months following Röntgen’s discovery, as demonstrations at scientific meetings and to “test” equipment before use. (B) Modern radiograph of a hand: a, blackened area of the film representing that area where only air is interposed between the beam source and the film; b, gray shadow where soft tissues absorb part of the beam before it reaches the film; c, mostly white area where calcium salts in bone absorb more x-rays than soft tissues do and the film is exposed only lightly; d, solid white area where the dense metal of the wedding ring absorbs all of the x-rays and so no area of the film is exposed underneath it.

Humans are still the best interpreters of specificit —that is, being able to identify what pathology actually is. Interdisciplinary collaboration among radiologists, surgeons, and engineers has enabled the acceleration of three-dimensional image-guided surgery, computer-assisted surgery, and surgical robotics, which have enhanced or replaced existing invasive procedures. Also, a convergence of diagnostic radiology and radiation therapy has advanced the treatment of many cancers by allowing image-guided delivery of site-specific chemotherapy or radiofrequency ablation of tumors.

The average age of death of a radiologist in the 1930s was 56. Marie Curie died in 1934, at age 67, from radiation-induced leukemia. Her notebooks are still radioactive today. Irène and Frédéric Joliot-Curie died at the ages of 59 and 58, respectively, in the 1950s, of radiation-induced illnesses. Sadly, it was the cataclysmic destruction of life by the detonations of atomic bombs in 1945 that initiated a conscious worldwide effort to reduce radiation exposure in medicine. Lead-lined gloves and aprons, however, would not become accepted standards of protection for all workers until a decade later.
