    Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Part 2

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Part 2

    Once Dr. Ray Damadian had the idea to create a machine that used nuclear magnetic resonance to capture diagnostic data by scanning a human body, he still had to build it. And though he did, other scientists got credit for inventing the MRI.

It’s okay

This podcast is ok. I have mixed feelings about it lol 😉

MyBadTeam ,

Annoying hosts

The premise is great, but these are two of the most annoying women I've ever heard. Please dump the current hosts and I'll start downloading on a regular basis.

OSURoss ,

Great Topics, Terrible Hosts.

This podcast is just like listening to a sorority girl and her jock friend flirt and stumble through quasi-history lessons and trying to compel more people to traffic their site...Actually, it's just like that.
