Ever wondered what different foods look like visualized by an MRI?

By this point you may have noticed that we’ve been featuring several unique artistic uses of diagnostic imaging on our blog as of late (see our past posts about peering inside ancient objects using x-rays, unusual x-rays, the radiologist selfie, and x-ray GIFs of the human body in motion).
This time around we found MRI technologist Andy Ellison’s blog “Inside Insides”, where he gives us an “under the skin” look at various foods that are all around us.
According to Wikipedia, an MRI (which is short for Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is:
a medical imaging technique used in radiology to investigate the anatomy and physiology of the body in both health and disease. MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields and radiowaves to form images of the body. The technique is widely used in hospitals for medical diagnosis, staging of disease and for follow-up without exposure to ionizing radiation.
