Abstract:

Asklepios, a non-profit organization, developed the museum and opened it to the public in 1990.

The museum collections are now transferred to the Museum dr. Guislain in Ghent (info@museumdrguislain.be, http://www.museumdrguislain.be/. The neuroradiological section of our museum is now open for the public in Ghent, but the official address REMAINS unchanged in the Military Hospital Brussels.

In the Military Hospital (Brussels) 169 Posters explain medical and non-medical applications of X-rays. Classical X-ray and CT (computed tomography) as well as interventional X-ray procedures, Magnetic Resonance imaging and Ultrasound techniques.

Publications: Books, comics, CD-Roms, and DVDs inform both children and parents on the history of radiology, the advantages and risks of the examinations, as well as the life of Professor W. K. Röntgen. For a detailed list of the available material for sale and to obtain an order form, see our website at http://www.radiology-museum.be.

Conferences with reception can be organized in both locations (Brussels or Ghent). So the museum is still connected in the future!
