Roland & Bernier, Second ary Sources in the History of Canadian Medicine: A Bibliography, Volume 2, pp.118 & 141. "The story of the serendipitous discovery or x-rays is almostlegendary, but it bears retelling in this volume. Although Rontgen was a r emarkable man, he likely did not foresee just how far his discovery would lead the next century. Despite its small population, Canada has played a full part in the early uses of radiation: the discovery of alpha particles, cobalt-60 treatment for cancer, Alexander Graham Bell's experiments, and one of the very first uses of a raadiograph in helping a surgeon to operate successfully, for example. [...] With more than 60 contributors and over 100 chapters, A New Kind of Ray brings together in one volume the story of Canadian achievements over the past 100 years in the fields of radiology, radiation oncology, nuclear medicine and radiation protection."
