Advanced imaging in the medical world developed in the 1950’s through the 1970’s thanks to new applications of physics to measure key parameters related to internal aspects of the human body. This involved imaging methodologies, and sophisticated software and data manipulation. Damadian was the first to perform a full body scan of a human being in 1977 to diagnose cancer with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technology. Today, MRI’s are used routinely by doctors to perform investigations and diagnoses prior to any invasive further steps, including surgery.
