Key figures in the history of radiology

Dr Daniel J Bell et al.

In the history of radiology certain key figures stand out for their groundbreaking contributions to the establishment and development of radiology as a science, medical specialty and major advance in patient care. This list is by necessity arbitrary, although we (the editors) hope that the majority of those listed will not be controversial selections. However we recognize that:

  1. the list is not exhaustive nor anywhere near 'complete' and we would welcome the inclusion of additional 'worthy' individuals
  2. there is an Anglo-American bias of those included, and we hope that in the future the inclusion of more individuals will correct this bias to a degree

For each individual on the following list, we have provided a few short words of their key accomplishment.
