Honors to Roentgenologists
Recently M. André Fallières, minister of labor and public health, bestowed the cross of the Legion of Honor on a number of roentgenologists: M. Henri Bourdon, preparator at the Laboratoire central de radiographie at the Hôpital Saint-Louis, who, affected with radiodermatitis, was obliged to undergo serious mutilating operations; Dr. Caillods, head of the roentgenographic service at the Hôpital St. Jacques at Besançon, and physician to the antituberculosis dispensaries of the Office d'hygiène sociale, who suffered the amputation of two fingers; Dr. Degouy, head of the roentgenographic service at the Hôtel-Dieu at Amiens, who, following the amputation of a finger, lost the use of one hand; Dr. Lacaille, one of the oldest roentgenologists of Paris, affected with pernicious anemia due to the action of roentgen rays, and Dr. Paschetta, director of the roentgenographic services in Nice, who suffered severe burns of the right hand and lower limbs.
