Rowland W. Redington was an American physicist who helped the General Electric company, and the country, gain a leadership role in diagnostic imaging. His work contributed to computed tomography x-ray scanning (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Both innovations have improved the health and well-being of millions around the world.
Medical Imaging’s Player Coach
Redington did not produce inventions on his own. He led research and business teams to create efficient imaging systems. He recruited talented technologists and coached his team to work together and complement each other. Redington had a remarkable ability to bring out the best in each team member and created a new model for collaborative research which persists today.
