A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Radiologist Collection - A Radiologist is a physician who, following completion of medical school, spends an additional four or five years exclusively studying diagnostic, therapeutic, or interventional radiology. In the United States, an individual is eligible for examination by the American Board of Radiology after completing an approved residency program. Successful candidates are entitled to the designation of diplomats of the American Board of Radiology. After completing the residency program and either before or after passing the board examination, an individual may train for an additional year or two in a subspecialty of radiology such as neuroradiology or pediatric, skeletal, genitourinary, or gastrointestinal radiology. Individuals may then confine their practice to a particular aspect of radiology or simply demonstrate a special interest in that area while practicing general diagnostic radiology. Career opportunities in radiology include practice in a hospital or private office, or both, as well as teaching, research, or administration. Radiologists are assisted by radiation physicists, radiation biologists, radiologic administrators, and radiologic technologists. The last are high school graduates who have successfully completed a course of at least two years in a school of technology approved by the American Medical Association through the Joint Commission on Radiologic Technology and who have passed a written examination offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. As with the radiologist, the radiologic technologist may, following additional training, become certified in an area of special interest. Registered radiologic technologists are qualified to perform certain radiologic procedures and assist in the performance of others, but always under the supervision of a radiologist. Imagine what it must have been like to have been present when the first MRI technology was demonstrated live to a group of doctors who were specialists in many fields of medicine? Those present would have witnessed a compelling medical miracle. Today we take for granted the routine use of X rays, mammograms, CAT scans, PET scans, MRIs and Ultrasound. And just think of what this means, or could have meant, and how lives might have changed for the individuals and their fields of practice commemorated herein. Paul White pioneered in diagnosis and prevention of diseases of the heart and circulatory systems, and was one of the first to use the electro-cardiograph to detect disorders. His 1931 book Heart Disease, is a standard reference in the field. He was a staunch advocate of weight control, proper diet and daily exercise. William & Charles Mayo joined their father at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, MN, and while building a cooperative group clinic made up of many specialties, including cardiology, founded the Mayo Clinic in 1905, and later the Graduate School of Medicine in 1915. CRAWFORD LONG received his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania, and performed the first surgery using ether in 1842, finally publishing his results in 1849. This was the beginning of ether anesthesia in the U.S. HARVEY CUSHING founded neurosurgery, contributed to understanding the pituitary, its disease symptoms being known as Cushing’s Syndrome. He contributed a great deal to training new surgeons, with text books illustrated with his own casework findings and his hand drawn illustrations. EPHRAIM McDOWELL, known as an accomplished abdominal surgeon performed the first successful ovariotomy in 1809. He performed many surgeries, one on President James Polk. MARY WALKER was far ahead of her times on women’s rights, becoming a physician in 1855 and serving as a nurse in the Civil War until commissioned and made an assistant surgeon. She became the first woman to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor, awarded for her medical work in the Civil War.
