Inventor. Known as "the father of MRI," he was a chemist who made the development of magnetic-resonace-imaging possible. In 2003, he and physicist Sir Peter Mansfield were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. The MRI technique gives physicians the ability to look inside the human body without using harmful radiation. It is valuable for imaging the brain and spinal cord, monitoring the progress of diseases and assessing damage to knees and joints. More than 60 million MRI examinations are performed every year. He is also a member of the Inventors Hall of Fame. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
