Healthy heart. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of an axial (horizontal) section through the human chest, showing a healthy heart. The heart is at upper right with the left ventricle appearing hollow. The lung fields are the dark areas at centre left and right; liver lobes (white) in the upper abdomen are seen central to the lung fields at the base of the lungs. At lower centre is a vertebra of the spine; the lungs are surrounded by the ribcage and chest muscles. MRI scanning uses a powerful magnet and radio waves to create "slice" images through the body.
