Science. Still working.
November 27, 2007
When my parents were born, antibiotics were yet to be mass produced. When I was born, the CT scanner was yet to be used on a human. In 1977 we saw the first full body MRI scan. My wife had her Stealth scan in the early 2000s before our youngest daughter was born.
What’s next to be developed I wonder?
Today the Herald carries this story (from the UK Independent) about Philips and a new generation of CT scanner. The pictures are amazing and I was stunned to see the suggestion that EMI managed to invest in the first CT scanner simply because the company made so much money from The Beatles. Who knew!
