Answer:

The first CAT scanner was made by EMI (which is why some places still call it the EMI scanner). Turns out that one of the key reasons for the EMI’s success was that they’d signed the Beatles. The profits they made off the Beatles’ music indirectly helped fund the development of the CAT scanner.

    direct lift from ” mri beatles” search.

    As a direct result of The Beatles’ success, Dr Timmis claimed, the scanner’s inventor, Sir Godfrey Hounsfield, was able to devote about four years developing the scanner from its 1968 prototype, to something that could be used in a clinical setting.

    His work was done in the Central Research Laboratory, a facility near Heathrow airport that was part of the EMI Group. Having sold 200 million of the Fab Four’s singles, (at seven inches, almost enough vinyl to stretch the length of the equator) the Beatles’ record company, EMI, was able to fund Hounsfield to do his research and the CT scanner was ready be used in hospitals in the 1970’s.

    The CAT Scanner was invented at an EMI-owned research lab and the research was funded in part by profits from EMI’s sales of Beatles albums.

    Electric and Musical Industries (EMI) was the company funding Godfrey N. Hounsfield’s work on the CT scanner.
    As the producer of the Beatles albums, they had a lot of money to throw at it.

    Cash flow from Beatles’ record sales helped Godfrey Hounsfield(working for EMI) pursue his idea of a CAT scan. Full story here:http://www.business-opportunities.biz/2008/08/22/the-cat-scanbeatles-connection/

    The Invention of the CAT Scan indirectly owed to the Beatles.

    Electrical & Musical Instrument Ltd. or EMI, which was earlier an industrial scientific company working on military technology, later signed the Beatles to a recording contract and made millions out of it.

    EMI then granted one of its researchers, Godfrey Hounsfield the freedom to pursue independent research who went on to invent the CT Scan.


  6. The Beatles’ success helped development of the MRI/CT scan machine, via the EMI.

    The success of The Beatles allegedly funded the EMI Group well enough to build the first commercially viable CT scanner.

    The first image of a ‘slice’ through the body was published in a medical journal in 1966. Just five years later a brain scanner made its debut in a London hospital.
    Initial development of the scanner was carried out at the electronics and music company EMI, which some say financed the research with profits from The Beatles.
