The invention and development of the CT scanner is one of the most fascinating tales in the history of radiology. It includes of one of the 20th century's most important recording companies, perhaps the most influential recording group of all time, and a Nobel laureate in medicine and physiology who never attended medical school or earned a PhD. The story of the CT scanner offers important lessons for radiologists on the interaction between medicine and business that are at least as important today as they were decades ago.
