It is with great sadness that IRS has heard of the passing of a great friend and colleague, Wynford Delahaye.
Wynford was a regular speaker on the early Liverpool Radiation Protection and Quality Assurance Courses. Indeed, he was an invited speaker on the very first course held at Whiston Hospital on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th October 1984.
He was an early advocate of quality assurance in diagnostic radiology and he provided an introductory overview talk on its relevance and the need for it at IRS’s early courses. He was a welcome contributor for several years and his wisdom, good humour and positive attitude contributed greatly to the success of the course, particularly in the early days.
Wynford’s career spanned the early post-war years of diagnostic radiology in the UK. At the beginning of his career, wet processing in radiography, conventional tomography and the need for dark adaptation in fluoroscopy were still commonplace. Towards the conclusion of Wynford’s career, he observed the widespread introduction of CT and the introduction of MR.
Consequently, Wynford embodied a wealth of practical knowledge and experience on the fundamentals of radiology and its changing role. He was a wonderful teacher and someone who was both willing and able to communicate and collaborate with all professional groups involved in diagnostic radiology. Wynford was one of life’s true gentlemen and is held in fond memory here in Liverpool.
