Henri Becquerel, French physicist, late 19th or early 20th century

Henri Becquerel, French physicist, late 19th or early 20th century. In 1896 Becquerel (1852-1908) discovered that uranium, when placed on a sealed, light-tight photographic plate, exposed the plate, producing an image of the uranium on the developed plate. He deduced that uranium was emitting an invisible but penetrating radiation. In 1903 he shared the Nobel prize for physics with Pierre and Marie Curie.

Examining a patients thorax using an X-ray tube and fluorescent screen, 1903

Examining a patient's thorax using an X-ray tube and fluorescent screen, 1903. The X-ray tube (on tripod) is set at the required height and the patient stands directly in front of it. In front of the patient, the operator holds a specially coated paper screen. When X-rays fall on the paper, its coating fluoresces, leaving as shadows those dense portions of the thorax, such as bones, which absorb X-rays. Many who worked with X-rays in the early days suffered the effects of over-exposure to radiation
