On 20 April 1972, Hounsfield and Dr. James Ambrose presented clinical results from the new medical imaging system, "computerized axial tomography" to attendees of that year's BIR Congress.
Mostly self-taught,Hounsfield left school with no qualifications, but received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1979, sharing the award with Allan McLeod Cormack for his part in developing the diagnostic technique.
The book, Godfrey Hounsfield: Intuitive Genius of CT, was written by Stephen Bates, Liz Beckmann, Adrian Thomas, and Richard Waltham, and will be published on 20 April. For more details, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, you can read Hounsfield's original manuscript by clicking here.
