We all know that MRI is Magnetic Resonance Imaging, but that was not the original name of
the machine. It was originally called MNR Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, and around the time that the film the
"China Syndrome" was made which just happened to be two weeks before
the radiation accidentally released at Three Mile Island, as coincidental as that may be.. and
people said, "ya know, if we're gonna be able to sell this thing we better pick a different name for it."
so they changed the name of the machine because of the fallout to Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Just a tidbit of History for you guys...:)
It's nice to have an open mind, but not so open your brain falls out.
