Professor Gillian Newstead, one of the eminent breast MRI lecturers of our time has generously donated this detailed, very interesting lecture describing the History of magnetism in general and breast MRI in particular. Her lecture takes us to a fascinating journey that helps us understand the evolution of this very useful imaging modality.
The purpose of this lecture is to:
* Learn about the development and knowledge of magnetism in the ancient world
* To review the work of many dedicated physicians and scientists in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, whose research efforts culminated in the new imaging method of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, advancing diagnostic expertise in the field of clinical medicine.
