4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through an engaging text and numerous photographs and illustrations, Carla Killough McClafferty tells the history of the X-ray, from its discovery to its uses today. The story begins in 1895, when Wilhelm Roentgen accidentally saw the bones of his own hand while experimenting with cathode rays in his laboratory in Germany. His gift to science led to an amazing revolution in medicine, but not without a terrible price: it was only through many scientists' injuries and deaths that the dangers of X-ray exposure were revealed. McClafferty's chronicle also covers such things as the use of X-rays in examining fine art and identifying forgeries the study of Egyptian mummies by X-rays and X-ray use in everything from astronomy to paleontology, from airplane manufacture to the familiar dentist's office

Fourth down and inches : concussions and football's make-or-break moment by Carla Killough McClafferty( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the 1905 football season ended, nineteen players were dead and countless others were critically injured. The public was outraged. The game had reached a make-or-break moment. Coaches, players, fans, and even the president of the United States had one last chance: change football or leave the field. Football's defenders managed to move the chains. Rule changes and reforms after 1905 saved the game and cleared the way for it to become America's most popular sport. But they didn't fix everything. Today, football faces a new injury crisis as dire as 1905's. With increased awareness about brain injury, reported concussions are on the rise among football players. But experts fear concussions may only be the tip of the iceberg. The injuries are almost invisible, but the stakes couldn't be higher: the brains of millions of young football players across the country. Carla Killough McClafferty takes readers on a bone-crunching journey from football's origins to the latest research on concussion and traumatic brain injuries in the sport. Fourth Down and Inches features exclusive photography and interviews with scientists, players, and the families of athletes who have literally given everything to the game
