For more than nine years The Journal and the Massachusetts General Hospital have cooperated in presenting two regular series of clinical features which combine a dash of radiological detective work with practical advice on treatment—the FRACTURE OF THE MONTH and the X-RAY SEMINAR. Their popularity has been such that 48 fractures of the month were reprinted in book form in 1965,1 and a similar collection of x-ray seminars is due to appear shortly (Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1969). There was no bias in the choice of two exercises in radiological diagnosis to initiate the variety of similar series which have since appeared in The Journal, such as ANESTHESIA PROBLEM OF THE MONTH and THERAPEUTIC GRAND ROUNDS. It was simply in recognition of the major role radiology plays in modern diagnosis, and its importance to the practicing physician.
This week, on page 503, The Journal publishes the 100th X-RAY
