Caption: Woman's hips. Coloured Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan of a coronal section through the hips of a 20 year old woman. At centre top are lumbar vertebrae of the lower spine. The two long femurs (thigh bones) are clearly seen in each leg; the head of each femur forms a ball joint with partly seen bones of the pelvis. Within the pelvis (at centre) lie the female reproductive organs, and the urinary bladder. Most of the image is muscle, clearly seen in the hips and upper legs on either side of the thigh bones. A fatty layer of tissue is seen at the skin surface; yellow on the inside thighs, mixed colour up the outside of the body.
