The Nobel Prize Committee awarded the laureates the Prize because they felt that the two recipients had made seminal discoveries concerning the use of magnetic resonance to visualise different structures, which eventually led to the development of modern magnetic resonance imaging, MRI, a breakthrough in medical diagnostics and research.This year’s Nobel Laureates in Physiology or Medicine are awarded for crucial achievements in the development of applications of medical importance. In the beginning of the 1970s, they made seminal discoveries concerning the development of the technique to visualize different structures. These findings provided the basis for the development of magnetic resonance into a useful imaging method. Many in the field felt the award of the Nobel Prize for the invention of MRI has been long overdue.
