This commentary discusses how the reasoning behind the founding of Tata Memorial Hospital (TMH), India's first specialized cancer hospital, was influential in setting up a larger infrastructure of cancer care in India. I show how the arguments that led to the use of radium at TMH enabled the value that TMH placed upon radiology to permeate other institutions around India, ultimately establishing radium as an essential element of cancer care.
