Caption: Body imaging. Composite image of several methods used to visualise the anatomy of the human body. The techniques seen here are magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), X-rays (radiography) and artworks. MRI scanning (like the sideways slice through the head) uses radio waves and a powerful magnet to obtain slice images through the human body. X-rays (like the half of the pelvis at left) reveal body tissues by their differing transmission of X-rays. X-ray angiography (like the kidneys, above pelvis) injects a contrast medium to highlight blood vessels. These techniques can be used to diagnose disorders within the body. The artworks include chest blood vessels, limb muscles and the skin.
