Cool radiology images from Walter Reed

This is just one of the really cool old medical photos depicting X-rays and equipment recently posted on flickr from the National Museum of Health & Medicine. Turns out the guy in the above photo was into self mutilation with needles from old-school record players.

Check the following for more great pics - Note the lack of lead shielding on many of the older photos, there is just one shot where people are wearing lead aprons and gloves.
