MRI Food Scans

Last week we posted about amazing food close-ups, made with an electron microscope.

Now watch food from a completely different angle: Through a MRI scanner.

Andy Ellison is an MRI technologist at Boston University Medical School. He is posting MRI scans on his blog Inside Insides. Ellison has a ton of food scans (in animated gif form) on his blog, with everything from the everyday tomato to the more exotic cherimoya. The images may not be particularly appetizing, but they are entrancing.
