Whole body scans. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of a man's body arranged in pieces. The body is in coronal (front) section. The brain is in the head at top centre. Lungs (upper centre) are dark, on either side of the horizontally-banded spinal column. Bones appear lighter than flesh and muscle. MRI scanning uses radio waves and a powerful magnetic field to produce "slice" images through the body.
