Caption: MRI scanning. A radiographer sits at the computer controls of an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scanner while conducting a brain scan of a child. The child's brain (in coronal section) is seen on the computer screen. In the background, the patient is being moved through the scanner's circular detector. MRI imaging (also called Nuclear Magnetic Resonance - NMR) is a diagnostic technique which produces "slice" images of sections through the body. It does not use potentially harmful X-rays, but depends upon a strong magnetic field and the use of radio waves. MRI scanning is of value in imaging the brain and spinal cord.
