The Roentgen Medal 1990-1999
Every year a different one. Yet always someone who deserves it.
Heizaburou Ichikawa (*1923)
Radiologist. Outstanding scientific work for gastroenterological radiology, in particular for the early detection of gastric cancer.
Paul Gerhardt (*1933)
Radiologist. Special contribution to the scientific development of diagnostic radiology and its fundamentals. Special supporter of the German Roentgen Museum.
Gerd Friedmann (1925-2020)
Physicist. Special contribution to the early detection of tumors with computer tomography, magnetic resonance tomography and digital subtraction angiography.
Joachim Trümper (*1933)
Astrophysicist. Pioneer in the field of X-ray astronomy. Fundamental studies on cosmic X-ray sources in space.
Mortimer M. Elkind (1922-2000)
Radiologist and Oncologist. Basic work on the cellular radiation biology in particular in the field of intracellular recreation and carcinogenesis after irradiation.
Karl-Heinz Höhne (*1937)
Computer scientists. Basic work on 3D visualization of realistic anatomy of CT and MRI image data. The algorithms for volume visualization were awarded several times and also today the state-of-the-art is in this area.
Mitsuyaki Abe (*1932)
Radiologist and Oncologist. Fundamental work in the field of clinical radiation therapy and hyperthermia. His development of interoperable radiotherapy found worldwide recognition.
Josef Kosanetzki (*1953)
Physicists. Basic work on the use of backscattered X-rays of the Compton effect for the generation of slice images and the further development of the process for industrial serial production.
Geoffrey Harding (*1948)
Physicists. Basic theoretical work on the use of backscattered X-rays of the Compton effect for the generation of slice images and the further development of the process for industrial serial production.
Albert L. Baert (*1931)
Radiologist. As one of the first radiologists Baert recognized the special significance of the computed tomography and used the new technique at an early stage. By bringing together different European Roentgen societies he acquired special merits in the European integration of radiology. Especially, he supported Eastern European countries.
Philips E.S. Palmer Davis (1921-2013)
Radiologist. Significant merits in radiology of the “World Health Organization“. Collaborator in the development of a “Basic-RadiologySystem“ (BRS) for developing countries.
Günter Schmahl (*1936)
Astrophysicist. Pioneering works on the development and realization of X-ray microscopy. Including basic works on the development of high resolution zone plates as X-ray lenses by means of microstructure research. X-ray microscopic experiments with synchrotron radiation and manufacturing of a laboratory X-ray microscope.
Ludwig Feinendegen (*1927)
Nuclear physician. Significant works on the entire field of nuclear medicine. Basic research in the clinical application of the “PositronEmission-Tomography” (PET).
Hans-Stefan Stender (1920-2007)
Radiologist. Significant works on the scientific classification on radiodiagnostics.
André Wambersie (1930-2020)
Radiobiologist. Basic works on radiobiology and radiotherapy of malignant tumors.
