The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2003  

The Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet has awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine jointly to Paul Lauterbur and Peter Mansfield for their discoveries concerning "magnetic resonance imaging". These discoveries made it possible to develop modern magnetic resonance imaging, MRI, which represents a breakthrough in medical diagnostics and research. Worldwide, more than 60 million investigations with MRI are performed each year.


 
MRI is used for imaging of all organs in the body.
