Veterinary X-Ray Procedure - 1918
Dog having radiographs taken at veterinary hospital in Dijon, France.
Dijon was one of the first hospitals outside of Roentgen’s own labs to integrate x-ray technology as a regular part of diagnostic testing. Though the first x-rays of humans were taken in 1895 and x-ray therapy was used (in the most crude form) since the early 1900s, the diagnostic value of the imaging procedure was not widely regarded in the United States until well into the 1930s.

    I doubt I could emotionally handle doing x-rays on a sad little pooch. Screaming humans, meh whatever.
