Dogfish research. Ontologist placing a juvenile lesser spotted dogfish (Scyliorhinus canicula, on perspex tray) in a vertical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner. MRI is used to study the internal structures. It uses a strong magnetic field to produce radio emissions from hydrogen atoms in the body. It can image both bone and soft tissues. Ontology is the study of the origin and development of an individual organism from conception to adulthood. Photographed at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
