The origins of renal tract imaging and Hurry Fenwick 19 Oct 2015

The video will look at the close links between radiology and urology. The contribution of Hurry Fenwick was enormous - a pioneer in cystoscopy, radiology, clinico-radiological-pathological correlation, and a pioneer in the use of phantoms in surgical teaching. His work made the (Royal) London Hospital a major centre in early uroradiology.

The education objectives will be:
  • To understand to origins of cystoscopy.
  • The use of the incandescent light bulb.
  • Early use of phantoms in surgical education.
  • Relationships of urology and radiology.
  • The use of the cystoscope in uroradiology.
  • The early development of contrast media (and later developments).
  • The concept of clinico-radiological-pathological correlation.
  • Early radiology at the Royal London Hospital.

Professor Adrian Thomas

Professor Thomas was a medical student at University College London. He was taught medical history by Edwin Clarke, Bill Bynum and Jonathan Miller. In the mid-1980s he was a founding member of what is now the British Society for the History of Radiology. In 1995 he organised the radiology history exhibition for the Röntgen Centenary Congress and edited his first book on radiology history. He has published extensively on radiology history and has actively promoted radiology history throughout his career. He is currently the Chairman of International Society for the History of Radiology. Professor Thomas believes it is important that radiology is represented in the wider medical history community and to that end lectures on radiology history in the Diploma of the History of Medicine of the Society Apothecaries (DHMSA). He is the immediate past-president of British Society for the History of Medicine, and the UK national representative to the International Society for History of Medicine.
