Within twenty minutes after this boy onboard a Navy transport broke his thumb boxing, it has been X-rayed, set and placed in a plaster cast. This is typical of the way the Navy Medical Department functions, bringing the finest medical care to boys who in many cases came from regions or homes where a similar degree of attention is practically unknown. Here the Navy physician is using a fluoroscope in conjunction with a dental x-ray machine.
