While he was working at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School, Ian Donald (later Regius Professor of Midwifery, University of Glasgow and a pioneer of diagnostic ultrasound) collaborated with Albert Claireaux and Robert Steiner on histological and radiological studies of hyaline membrane disease. In 1953, Donald and Steiner published thefirst radiological study of a series of cases. The success of this research stimulated Donald's interest in imaging technologies.
