Without the Beatles would there be CT scanners?

The film Yesterday imagines a works where the Beatles did not exist and the consequences that had on the works. This reminded me of the lecture Helter Skelter to helical spirals how the Beatles changed medical diagnosis by Jim Western as part of #24 hour inspired that attended last year.

Houndsfield and the Beatles helped develop CT scanners. However, Houndsfield is not the 5th Beatle, he founded the diagnostic method and was able to develop due to producers of the Beatles White Album; EMI who were making so much money as well as building Abbey road studios they had money to fund research.
