Medical physicist who pioneered body scanning as a way to diagnose diseaseFrom the earliest X-rays to the latest body scanners, the ability to visualise the inside of the living body has revolutionised medical diagnosis. With a profound understanding of physics, great technical ingenuity and a mission to put these skills to use in the service of medicine, John Mallard, who has died aged 94, was one of the first to establish routine scanning services that revealed tumours in organs such as the brain and the liver. His team at theUniversity of Aberdeen built the first whole-body MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scannerand pr...
