Cannon was the first to use x -ays to study the digestive system; his work laid the foundations of gastrointestinal radiology. "[His] pioneering research, done with a series of collaborators, examined the nature of swallowing, gastric peristalsis, the time of passage for different foodstuffs out of the stomach into the duodenum, control of the pylorus, and peristalsis of the small intestine" (DSB). Cannon also introduced the case system into medical education at Harvard (see no. 2 above). Bookseller Inventory # 39383
