  • Evolution of the techniques of radiation therapy in the management of lymphoma. [Historical Article]
    Int J Clin Oncol 2013; 18(3):359-63Hoppe RT
  • Radiation techniques for the treatment of Hodgkin's disease have evolved dramatically in the past century. Shortly after the discovery of X-rays, the lymphomas in general, and Hodgkin's disease in particular, were noted to be radiosensitive. However, equipment limitations restricted the ability to administer sufficient doses to adequate depth to ensure long-term control. This situation improved s…
  • X-ray tubes--continuous innovative technology. [Review]
    Br J Radiol 1997; 70 Spec No:S1-9Ammann E, Kutschera W
  • The X-ray tube is one of the most important components in any X-ray system. In the beginning, physicists and physicians used gas ion tubes. The so-called Coolidge tube applied a high vacuum and is still used today. Medical examinations have required continuously improved designs of X-ray tubes (smaller focal spots at a higher output). The principle of the Goetze line focus is still applied in any…
  • [Synchrotron radiation: a new source in x-ray mammography]. [Journal Article]
    Radiol Med 1992; 84(3):181-8Burattini E, Gambaccini M, … Simonetti G
  • This work was aimed at evaluating the image quality obtainable in X-ray mammography using synchrotron radiation monochromatic lines. After a short review of the current mammographic techniques, the main features of synchroton radiation in the X-ray field are analyzed, especially of that emitted by the Adone storage ring. Its features are then compared with the radiation emitted by a Coolidge tube…
  • Radiography of the eye and orbit: a historical overview. [Historical Article]
    Surv Ophthalmol 1988 Mar-Apr; 32(5):361-8Taveras JL, Haik BG
  • The history of radiography and orbital imaging begins in 1895 with Wilhelm Roentgen's discovery of x-rays. Over the next three quarters of a century, radiographic pioneers like Dr. William Sweet, who developed the Sweet method, and Dr. George E. Pfahler, who made the first successful pictures of a brain tumor, helped to bring radiography into the 20th century. With each new radiologic innovation …
