Caption: False-colour magnetic resonance image (MRI) of a coronal (frontal) section through the head of a healthy human infant, showing the division of the brain into left and right cerebral hemispheres. MRI is also called NMR - nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, but unlike CT (computed tomography) scanning does not use ionising radiation. MRI is possible because certain particles (protons) in the molecules of different body tissues behave differently when subjected to a strong magnetic field. By interfering with the magnetic field using radio pulses, the protons emit their own radio signals that are measured & used as the basis for constructing an image.
