Full body scan of a female swimmer. Her brain is purple (top), her heart and arteries are red/orange (upper centre), her kidneys are pale green (centre), her spleen is bright green (right) and her liver is dark green (left). Hannah is the first person to have been scanned by Siemens' Avanto magnetic resonance (MR) tomograph. This sytem uses Total Imaging Matrix (TIM) technology, which can scan an area 205 centimetres long with a resolution four times higher than conventional systems. This means an entire body can be scanned in one go. It takes 12 minutes to scan an entire person, which is twice as fast as machines already on the market.
