Inscriptions
Display caption reads: "HUA T'OH (c 141-208 A.D.). The most celebrated Chinese surgeon. He was credited with many remarkable operations, opening the abdominal wall to excise diseased organs and employing anaesthetic powders. But he fell foul of the emperor Wei and died in prison; and only one of his surgical techniques survived--the technique for castration, used to supply the emperor's harems with attendants until the twentieth century."

Inscriptions
Display caption reads: "PIEN CH'OH (fl. 225 B.C.) The first Chinese physician whose name is recorded by history. His miraculous ability to see the internal organs through the skin aided him greatly in diagnosis. He was the inventor of pulsology, the complex system of diagnosis from variations in the pulse, and the Nan Ching, the first work referring to pulse theory, is credited to him."
