History of radiology

Last revised by Craig Hacking on 16 Apr 2020

The history of radiology can be traced back to Wilhelm Roentgen taking the first x-ray of a person - specifically his wife's hand on November 8th 1895, now an iconic image. 

Since then there have been many milestones and individual contributions leading to the development and refinement of the various modalities and techniques currently being performed in imaging departments around the world.
