Born in London, England, on October 9, 1933, Peter Mansfield earned his doctorate at Queen Mary College. He eventually devised a way to use mathematical techniques to decode signals coming from magnetic resonance (MRI) scanners, creating images of the body’s internal structures. In 1993, Mansfield was knighted, and in 2003 was awarded the Nobel Prize along with Paul Lauterbur for their MRI work.
