CT scanning has had inestimable effects on medical care, and we owe a huge debt to Godfrey Hounsfield and Allan Cormack for their pioneering work. It is difficult to overestimate the impact that the EMI/CT scanner has had on medicine. Godfrey Hounsfield received the Nobel Prize in Stockholm in 1979. Hounsfield looked at practical applications and approached the Department of Health in London in 1968. He met Dr. Cliff Gregory and Gordon Higson, who were scientific advisers at the Department of Health and Social Security (DHSS). Hounsfield was then introduced to Dr. Evan Lennon, a radiological adviser who knew Frank Doyle from the Hammersmith Hospital. Doyle gave Hounsfield two lumbar vertebrae of different densities, which Hounsfield examined and returned to Doyle with computer printouts of numbers in the coronal plane of the vertebral body. Hounsfield had already worked out a scale of numbers, and Doyle was impressed with the result. Lennon also made contact with two other radiologists: Dr. James Ambrose and Dr. Louis Kreel. Ambrose was a neuroradiologist from Atkinson Morley's Hospital in South London, and Kreel was from the Royal Free Hospital; Kreel subsequently moved to Northwick Park Hospital in Harrow, where he did pioneer work using the EMI body scanner. With the development of larger whole-body scanners in 1975, first used by Louis Kreel of Northwick Park, the results particularly from scanning the chest and pelvis opened new diagnostic possibilities.
