B0001014 Foetal MRI scan
Credit: Nathan Jeffery. Wellcome Images
A high resolution magnetic resonance imaging
(HRMRI) scan of a miscarried 20-week old human
foetus, showing the head and a cross-section of
the brain. This technique uses a magnetic field to
induce the hydrogen nuclei in tissues to absorb
and emit radio waves, producing an image which
allows internal structures to be seen without
disturbing the actual specimen.
