Content DescriptionPapers relating to the Echo Planar Imaging Project developed by Peter Mansfield, the Department of Health and Social Security (DHSS) and Picker International [manufacturers of scanners and MRI equipment]. The aim of the project was 'to develop a prototype [EPI] system at Nottingham, within a two year period, in such a form that it can be added to Picker Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) equipment available on the market in 2 years' time'. It involved the purchase of a 0.5 T superconducting magnet for use at Nottingham. File includes correspondence between the parties, estimates of costs, minutes of project meetings, project review documents, a preliminary magnet plan from Oxford Instruments, and a copy of Picker International's NMR Superconductive System Building Pre-Installation Specification. [The cost estimates were commercially sensitive at the time.]
