Healthy breast. Coloured digitised Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan of a normal female breast, seen in side view. Colours illustrate the different tissues found within the breast (mammary gland). The breast consists largely of fibro- fatty tissue (orange, yellow). In the fibro-fatty tissue are aggregations of glandular lobules (not clearly defined here) which are the milk secreting glands of the breast. Branching ducts (magenta) serve to transport milk from the glandular lobules to the nipple. The nipple is at centre left. MRI scanning provides sections through body tissue using a magnetic field and radio-waves.
