Magnetic resonance imaging: the long path to the patient
The development of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an exciting story of innovation spanning four decades – if not several centuries – and two Nobel prizes. But the fact that MRI scanners are now used in patient care all over the world is also thanks to industrial research and development.
A mathematician from the time of Napoleon
Back then a genius, today a unit of magnetism
Nobel prize for magnetic resonance
Use on living organisms - and another Nobel prize
MRI let loose in Germany - on a pepper
Giant tubes rolled out
Finding its way into routine
A special kind of coolant
More powerful, more usable, and less time-consuming
A Milestone reached
