MRI scan. Patient undergoing an MRI scan. MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is a diagnostic technique that produces cross-sectional images of parts of the body. These are built up from the tiny radio signals emitted when hydrogen atoms inside the patient's body are made to fall out of magnetic alignment. MRI is most useful for studying soft tissues. The images produced are examined by a radiographer and disorders such as tumours diagnosed. Photographed at the Myology Centre of the French Association for Combating Myopathy (AFM), the Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, France.
