Description

Photograph by Woodbine for the Daily Herald newspaper, 22 January, 1932. As a nurse makes the patient comfortable, the radiologist, in heavy protective clothing, sets up the X-ray machine. For many people, the X-ray department symbolises the cold face of modern medicine. This may be in part because radiologists need to leave the patient alone so that they can avoid excesive X-ray exposure.
