CT scanner scientist Sir Godfrey Hounsfield celebrated

The scientist who helped develop the CT scanner has been celebrated by the University of Nottingham 10 years after his death.

Sir Godfrey Hounsfield, from Nottinghamshire, received a knighthood for his pioneering work into X-ray computed tomography (CT).
