This meeting examined the original discovery of nuclear magnetic resonance and its application in spectroscopy and in magnetic resonance imaging during the past half century. Chaired by Professor Robert Steiner the meeting considered the scientific and technical developments, and also the biological and clinical applications of these new technologies. It also discussed issues relating to the support and impact of industrial research. Of particular interest were the inter-relationships between manufacturers, Government agencies and medical specialists in acquiring and evaluating new equipment, and devising safety and clinical criteria. This is the first annotated transcript of a collection of four Witness Seminar meetings held between 1996 and 1997, published in volume 2 of Wellcome Witnesses to Twentieth Century Medicine, which includes: Making the Human Body Transparent: The Impact of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (glossary); Research in General Practice (1 graph); Drugs in Psychiatric Practice (glossary); The MRC Common Cold Unit (1 chart and glossary).
