Summary of 1980-1989

  • Introduction of mobile magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a revolutionary advance in imaging technology that produces multi-dimensional visual images of internal body parts in any plane to diagnose abnormalities of bone, joint, and soft tissue – as well as injuries or tumors located in the chest, abdomen, pelvis, brain and spinal cord; without the risk of harmful exposure to radiation.
  • Introduction of mobile lithotripsy as a non-invasive technique to remove kidney stones.
