Origin of Computed Tomography.[edit]

While it may be true that Robert Ledley got all the credit, it is also true that Richard Gordon (Radiology, University of Manitoba) wrote the first software which performed the computation known as computed tomography. See the section labeled as HISTORY at the URL:

Gordon's software was written in 1970, while Robert Ledley's work was done in the MID 1970s.

I suggest that credit should be given where credit is due.
