Dr. Milo M. Webber: This conference, arranged by Dr. Leslie R. Bennett, Head of the Division of Nuclear Medicine, focuses attention on some of the developments in the use of radioisotope scanning in medical diagnosis, an area that has expanded remarkably these past few years.
Relatively recent advances in scanning technology have made possible the scans to be discussed in this conference. First, advances in collimator design have permitted the use of larger, more sensitive scintillation detectors. Second, isotope concentration of the photographic scan presentation is much more easily appreciated by the human eye than the previously used dot recording
