Interview with Deborah Wolterman, radiology technician

I work at a radiology center. Every day we identify physical events that are happening inside human bodies. For thousands of years, none of those things were visible, but they were still happening. Then Röntgen tried to understand whether cathode rays could pass through glass, and he discovered these other rays, he called them “x” for “unknown.” Now we can see everything—The original radiation dosage was over 1300 times higher than modern parameters, but Röntgen didn’t know that, he didn’t know about side effects. No one did—Well of course people died from it.
