  Ever since the discovery of X-rays by Rontgen in 1895 and radioactivity by Curie in 1896, curiosity to apply this new science in medicine grappled many. Only one year later, X-ray was used therapeutically by Grubbe to treat breast cancer.

  These electromagnetic waves being invisible and causes lethal genetic damage is the science and its use for killing cancer cells is the art. Because this art was not known initially, the inventor herself died of the toxicities, thereby highlighting importance of protection and safety aspect.
