Download PDF for this date

A new method for diagnosing complicated cases of heart ailments has been developed here at the Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical Center, officials of the institution announced today. The method, developed by Professor Fritz Dreyfuss, employs very small amounts of radioactive iodine as tracers to detect and diagnose heart infracts that cannot be reliably traced through usual clinical tests.
