Professor Adrian M. K. Thomas has been interested in history since his school days when he was taught by the author Glen Petrie.

He has written three books on the history of radiology and has given many talks and presentations. He is the honorary Librarian and Archivist of the British Institute of Radiology and the Clinical Director for Radiology for South London Healthcare NHS Trust. He is Chairman of the International Society for the History of Radiology and President of the British Society for the History of Medicine. Dr Arpan K Banerjee qualified in medicine from St Thomas's Hospital Medical School in London, UK. He was appointed a consultant Radiologist at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital in 1995 and was also appointed an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at the Birmingham Medical School that year. From 2005 to 2007 he was president of the Radiology Section of the Royal Society of Medicine, London where he continues to serve on the Council. In 2012 he was appointed Chairman of the British Society of the History of Radiology of which he is a founder member and council member. He is a founder member and Treasurer of the International Society for the History of Radiology (ISHRAD). In 2011 he was appointed a member of the scientific programme committee of the Royal College of Radiologists. He is the author/co-author of 6 books including 'Radiology Made Easy', and over a hundred articles including over 50 peer reviewed papers on medical, radiological and medical historical topics.


Thomas and Benerjee provide a highly accessible account of the history of medical imaging from classical radiology to modern CT, MRI and PET imaging. The historic incidents are telling and well chosen, and anyone working in radiology will enjoy learning about the work and struggles of their early predecessors. * CHOICE *
When I learned that these authors were producing a book with this title I thought that I should be in for a treat. When I read it, I was not disappointed. Adrian Thomas is probably the greatest living authority on the history of x-rays, and Arpan Banerjee has enormous enthusiasm for all radiological history. This comes over in what they have written. ... This is a delightful book that informs and entertains the reader. There are lots of good illustrations - all in black and white, as befits a book on history - and I recommend it strongly. * Professor Angela Newing, SCOPE *
This book should be a must for all professional groups, especially those embarking on their career pathways and an excellent first point of contact for those interested in researching radiological history. * Stewart Whitley, RAD Magazine *
