Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Part 2

Once Dr. Ray Damadian had the idea to create a machine that used nuclear magnetic resonance to capture diagnostic data by scanning a human body, he still had to build it. And though he did, other scientists got credit for inventing the MRI.   Research: ---Bashir U, Rock P, Murphy A, et al. T2 relaxation.
