Radiotherapy in 1925
The installation of a radiotherapy apparatus in Italy in 1925. The young man on the bed will be subjected to X-rays coming from the machine to the left of the picture to cure tinea on his head. As can be seen, the X-rays will be spread throughout the entire room, with virtually no precautions being taken. At that time, there were no techniques available to localise the incoming rays.
