Caption: Neurospin MRI research centre. Neurospin, one of the most advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) research centres in the world, was founded in 2006 and is located near Paris, France. The building seen here was designed by the architect Claude Vasconi, who used the form of an electromagnetic wave, like those produced by an MRI scanner. Neurospin has 3T and 7T scanners. The 'T' designations refer to the magnetic field strengths of 3 Tesla and 7 Tesla. These are extremely strong magnetic fields, and hence this technique is known as ultra high-field magnetic resonance imaging. The high magnetic field strength allows detailed examination of the brain and brain disorders. There are plans for an 11.7T scanner. Photographed in 2007.
