In 1895 Wilhelm Röntgen first discovered the x-ray to look into the human body indirectly from the outside. Before the advent of radiology, it was only upon a patient’s death that the internal organs could be studied. Doctors could only examine the outside of a body while the internal structures were mostly hidden. In its relatively brief history since Röntgen’s revolutionary discovery, radiology has come a long way and now occupies a pivotal position in health care. In the eastern suburbs of Paris, le Centre d’Imagerie Médicale du Galilée, a state-of-the-art radiology center, focuses on the health of its patients.
