Tesla could generate rays that could expose a plate 40 feet away, but honestly, how would this be practical for medical use? It doesn't mean it isn't really cool, but at some point the stuff has to be practical too. Luckily some of his fans made fortunes making some of the concepts useable.
Are you familiar with E. P. Thomson's "Roentgen Rays and the Phenomena of the Anode and Cathode"?
