    COM: "Here you have a series of radioactive scans which resemble modern graphic works of art... an enlarged liver.......a diagnostic scan of phlebitis(?) in a patients leg."

    Other portions of the body, tumours, all pictured from the outside without invading the body."

    "At Queens Hospital Centre Dr. Lawrence Sivell(?), director of nuclear medicine demonstrated the technique-"

    ...Director of this project is Dr. Moshe Ben Harag(?), and Israeli scientist who explains the advantage of nuclear scanning and in particular this new computerised unit."

    DR. BEN HARAG(?): "This instrument actually helps us to increase diagnostic accuracy, improving diagnostic ability of the scanning provided, however because not only does it give us a picture of the distribution of the drugs(?) injecting into the various organs of the liver ... but it also gives us a number so we can know how much is in a particular organ. This also enables us to follow up the improvement of the patient, how the patient is progressing."

    This picture here ... now we can see there is a difference between the two kidneys. In order to know how much the difference is.. we will construct what we call an area of regional interest around the particular kidney which we suspect and now we can read how much activity, how much tract(?) is concentrated...we can see 1200 currants in this kidney, we can only see 900 currants in the other kidney."

    COM: "To make certain that the kidneys have absorbed different amounts of radioactive material. Dr. Ben ? analyses the amount each kidney has take up...

    ...it is now possible to change the picture enhancing only the areas which the doctor wishes to study. All the data can also be stored, played back to observe changes in the same patient."
