Radiological Preparedness

Radiological Preparedness 1 Bundy Allen , M.D. ↵ 1 President's address, before the Radiological Society of North America, Annual Meeting, at St. Louis, Nov. 30–Dec. 4, 1931. Excerpt Through your gracious consideration I am privileged to open our Seventeenth Annual Session and preside over your deliberations. To thus address you as the Executive Officer of the Radiological Society of North America is a great honor. That you have made this possible for me is sincerely appreciated. Our American Medical Association is the largest and also the most influential and democratic medical organization in the world. As such, its responsibilities are enormous. Time adds opportunities and also new responsibilities, which must be anticipated and assumed. These facts have been concisely stated by a president, who, in addressing the House of Delegates, called attention to the important position held by the American Medical Association in the social and political structure of our country. Analogous to the American Medical Association, our association, our specialty in medicine, is enjoying the privilege of being one of the largest and most active radiological societies in the world, a distinction which has been attained within the period of sixteen years. There never has been, since the beginning of medical history, an advancement of like or similar rapidity in any branch, such as we have observed in the short period since Roentgen's discovery of the X-ray in 1895. Our organization has been primarily instrumental in promoting the development and revision of this science. We must now individually and collectively combine our energies with all other radiologists to carry on this most important and valuable branch, or specialty, in the field of medicine and surgery. The Seventeenth Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America which we are to-day opening is evidence of a progress of which we should be proud. We have accomplished this progress as a group, supporting a single cause. During recent years the X-ray has advanced medical science—has in many fields almost revolutionized it. Men of vision, observing this rapid progress and its consequence, suggest that we may have entered only the elementary fields of possible future developments. We, as members of the Radiological Society of North America, have been participants in this development and it is our duty to prepare our organization for the obvious future progress. Individual interest and effort are no longer sufficient to attain best results: duplication of effort must be eliminated. You all know that many of us are now members of several radiological societies and subscribers to the several official journals. This means that we must attend several official meetings each year and in many other ways divide our time and efforts in the furtherance of the common cause. This is not advantageous, it seems to me. “Where there is union there is strength.” Copyrighted by the Radiological Society of North America http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Radiology Radiological Society of North America, Inc.
