Su questo libro:


The x ray has proven to be the greatest medical miracle in the 20th century. Wilhelm Roentgen, who received the Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery in 1901, had no idea how his x rays would later help doctors diagnose health problems. But it was not until the development of the computer and the genius of a man who realized that x-ray images could be stored and manipulated by computers, that x rays were used in an amazingly accurate diagnostic device known as computerized axial tomography, or CAT Scanner. That man is Godfrey Hounsfield and he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1979, along with Allan Cormack for his invention.

L'autore: Susan Zannos has been a lifelong educator, having taught at all levels, from preschool to college, in Mexico, Greece, Italy, Russia, and Lithuania, as well as in the United States.
