On 27 September the Royal Mail released a set of four postage stamps celebrating the role UK scientists have played in medical technological advances. The stamps feature ultrasonic imaging (fetal), scanning electron microscopy, magnetic resonance imaging (head), and the 41p stamp depicts thoracic computed tomographic (CT) scanning. The image for this stamp was provided by the radiology department of the Royal Victoria Infirmary. A small variety of different first day covers were produced in conjunction with this set. These included covers featuring the Royal College of Surgeons, the Lancet, and the British Medical Association which is illustrated. The stamps were designed by Pierre Vermeir and printed in the Netherlands.
