Originally from Smyrna, Turkey, Nahum studied radiology in France and eventually became a university professor of radiology at University Beaujon Hospital in Paris. During his tenure, he presided over the hospital's medical commission and served as secretary general of the SFR. His efforts helped shape modern clinical radiology and played a major role in improving patient care, according to the society.
