Lebanon VA Medical Center is celebrating Radiology Technology Week to recognize the important care and treatment provided by members of our radiology department. The celebration takes place each November to commemorate the anniversary of the x-ray's discovery by German Physicist, Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen on Nov. 8, 1895. For his discovery, Roentgen was awarded the Nobel prize in Physics in 1901.
The week-long celebration calls attention to the important role medical imaging and radiation therapy play in Veteran care. For more information, go to http://www.lebanon.va.gov/Services/Radiology.asp
