Abstract: Article documenting the first use and subsequently the history of X-Rays in Malta in the beginning of the 20th century. This period embraces three phases: 1. The experimental phase of X-rays from 1896 to 1908 represented by the pioneering efforts of Mr. John Ellis and Dr. Themistocles Zammit, 2. The introduction of medical X-rays at the Central Hospital in 1908.The third phase marks the recognition in 1919 of medical radiology as a distinct speciality in its own right to be entrusted to a specially trained practitioner.
