Caption: Henry Kaplan (1918-1984), US radiologist, working with an early model of a linear accelerator, which has had its hood removed to reveal its internal structures. Kaplan invented the first medical linear accelerator, which was used for radiation therapy. This six million volt machine was first used in 1955, and the first patient to be fully cured by linear accelerator radiation therapy was Gordon Isaacs in 1957. Kaplan was the first radiologist elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1972. Photographed in the 1950s.
