Northampton School for Boys

Professor John Mallard (1927-2021)

The school was greatly saddened to hear of the recent passing of former student, Professor John Mallard who invented two of the world’s most important medical scanning technologies – MRI and PET scans. This technology is used globally for body scans with hundreds and thousands of patients benefitting from Professor Mallard’s vision for medical imaging and countless lives saved. Please find a link to a suitably glowing tribute posted by the BBC:
