 for their joint work on medical applications of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Building on Lauterbur's discovery that gradients in the magnetic field could be used to create a two-dimensional picture, Mansfield demonstrated that a useful imaging technique could be developed through mathematical analysis of the radio signals emitted during the process. He also showed that very rapid imaging was possible, a potential that was realized in medicine ten years later.
