1921 in Hagåtña.

Maria Leon Guerrero, a kantora (singer) in the Cathedral and daughter of the techa Vicenta, went to the hospital complaining of abdominal pains.  The American doctor ordered an x-ray done.  Maria refused.

Why?  According to Maria, disrobing for an x-ray would "injure her modesty."

She finally consented to the x-ray on the condition that her husband remain at her side.  The x-ray revealed she had kidney stones.
