Pioneer X-Rays conducted at the Ballarat School of Mines

1896

According to 'Salute to the X-Ray Pioneers of Australia' the X-Ray experiments conducted at the Ballarat School of Mines 'played a conspicuous part in the development of the application for x-rays to medicine.' John M. Sutherland conducted most of the experiments and made induction coils giving 6 inch, 12 inch and 16 inch sparks respectively.

The 27 original X-Rays include human bones, kangaroo hand, steel, bent knee, gold in quartz, snake, and others.
