    other Doctors worked tirelessly for seven long
    years to complete the construction of the first
    whole-body MRI scan. Damadian discovered that
    cancerous tissue emits response signals that last
    much longer than non cancerous tissue. The MRI
    scanner is still currently used as a tool for
    medical diagnosis. Today there are thousands of
    MRI scanners that function much more efficiently.
