In 1969, magnetic resonance imaging machines (MRIs) and similar technologies were just an idea in the visionary life saving technologies mind of a young Raymond Damadian. As a boy, he watched his grandmother die painfully from breast cancer, which would eventually play a role in his pursuit of a career in medical research and pioneering this amazing field.
Although in 1971 his concept of detecting tumors through MRIs was widely met with mocking skepticism, within six years he became the first researcher to do a scan of a human, creating technology to reveal cancer within the human body. His life has been an incredible journey of discovery that will help you learn:
How his concept for cancer detection was inspired and developed
Why faith remains an integral part of his work
Why he is a strong supporter of the creativity and freedom found in patents.
