Uncovering what’s inside
Medical imaging has come a long way since the first X-ray of a human hand in 1895. However, for a long time there were only certain things we could understand about the inside of the body without opening it up to have a look. Now, it’s never been easier thanks to a new technique known as MR (magnetic resonance) imaging.
Using images created when lights rays in water react to a magnetic field generated by a scanner, this revolutionary, non-invasive technique enables us to learn how our brain and body work when we’re healthy and measure these changes over time.
Hamied Haroon from the University of Manchester uses MR imaging in his work and shares how it’s revolutionising our understanding of health, disease, and aging.
