Healthy kidneys. Coloured Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan of a coronal section through a human abdomen, showing healthy kidneys and liver. A front view is seen. The lower spinal vertebrae are seen running from top to bottom through the centre of the image. The kidneys are at lower centre on either side of the spine. The scan has revealed details of the internal structure of each kidney. Above the kidney at left is the liver (dark coloured). Above the kidney at right is the region where the stomach and spleen are found. MRI is a diagnostic technique that provides cross- sectional and three dimensional images of the body using a strong magnet and radio waves.
