Abstract:
This thesis presents an historical account of the introduction and use of two medical technologies, mass miniature radiography (MMR) and chemotherapeutic regimes, respectively, for the detection and treatment of Tuberculosis (TB) after the Second World War. The thesis focuses on two specific locations, the cities of Glasgow, in Scotland, and Cape Town, in South Africa, to present parallel case studies of the innovation, adoption and adaption of new medical technologies.
