Roentgen-Ray Diagnosis of Pregnancy
Recently, much attention has been aroused by the beautiful roentgenograms exhibited by the roentgenologist Dr. C. Heuser, which permit diagnosing pregnancy even from the first month. His method consists in injecting iodated petrolatum in the uterus before taking the picture. In case of pregnancy, the uterus will appear occupied to some extent. Dr. Heuser has left for London, to submit his method and report his results at the roentgenologic congress to be held there.
A number of our higher institutions of learning and prominent medical personalities are advising the organization of special institutes for each serious disease, such as cancer, tuberculosis, syphilis, leprosy, goiter and hydatid infection. The younger scientists, on the contrary, believe that the real basic problem consists in the proper organization of the fundamental sciences: normal and applied anatomy, histology and embryology, physiology, physical and biologic chemistry, pathology, microbiology and parasitology.
