The history of the development of cerebral imaging is a complex combination of the forces of innovation at both the individual and industrial levels. Principal paradigms of neuroimaging shifted as a result of technological breakthroughs, beginning with the discovery of x-rays and continuing with the development of computerized imaging to the latest imaging paradigm, nuclear magnetic resonance imaging. We discuss these landmarks in neuroimaging in historical context, with emphasis on the particularly rapid development of imaging technology during the past 30 to 40 years, including the most recent emerging technologies.
