Caption

First photograph to show a patient being positioned for a medical X-ray (1896). The photo was published in Archives of Clinical Skiagraphy, the first radiological journal, in 1896, the year after Roentgen discovered X-rays. The patient's leg is placed onto a photographic plate. The X-ray tube is of the pear-shaped design used by Roentgen, and there is an induction coil (upper left), an accumulator (upper centre), and three Leyden jars. The patient is unprotected from stray X-rays. The journal caption reads: "Photograph of apparatus and method employed for obtaining a skiagram".
