Dr. Isadore Meschan checks the amount of radiation on a Tri-Carb Liquid Scintillation Counter that was used to detect amounts of radiation. He joined the Bowman Gray School of Medicine faculty in 1955 as Chairman of the Department of Radiology and pioneered the clinical use of cobalt, a radioactive metal which when administered, produces an effective tissue-killing ray similar to an x-ray.
