Caption: Healthy breasts. Coloured Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan of an axial section through a 50 year old woman's chest, showing healthy breasts. At lower frame are organs within the chest, surrounded by bones of the ribcage. At upper frame are the two breasts. Breasts are made up of fatty tissue containing glandular milk- secreting lobules. Ducts from the lobules (central coloured regions of both breasts) collect the milk and open into the nipples. MRI uses radio waves and a magnet to create images of "slices" though the body.
