Advanced MRI brain scan Featured Human Body Image

Advanced MRI brain scan

Advanced MRI brain scan. This 3D magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a normal human brain has been produced by the 3T MRI scanner at Neurospin, one of the most advanced MRI research centres in the world. The front of the brain is at left. The coloured lines indicate the many neural pathways that exist in the brain. Neurospin has 3T and 7T scanners. The T designations refer to the magnetic field strengths of 3 Tesla and 7 Tesla. These are extremely strong magnetic fields, and hence this technique is known as ultra high-field magnetic resonance imaging. The high magnetic field strength allows detailed examination of the brain and brain disorders. Neurospin was founded in 2006, and is located near Paris, France

Artwork of a section through healthy human kidney

Kidney. Illustration of a section through a whole healthy human kidney. At centre left is the renal artery (red) and vein (blue) which supply blood to, and drain blood from the kidney. The kidney is divided into an outer cortex (brown) and pyramid- shaped units (red) of the inner medulla. Blood is passed into a network of capillaries in the cortex ending in small tight knots called glomeruli (not seen). Glomeruli are blood filtering units from which excess water and metabolic wastes pass from the blood into tubules, where the waste turns to urine. The urine then drains through the medullary pyramids into the ureter (yellow) which passes the urine down into the urinary bladder

Blood clot Featured Human Body Image

Blood clot

Blood clot. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of a blood clot, also known as a thrombus. Red blood cells (erythrocytes) are seen trapped in a web of white fibrin threads made of an insoluble protein. Small platelets (green) have also become enmeshed in the clot. When activated, platelets become spiky (as here), clump together and release chemical factors into the blood. These factors cause fibrin threads to form. A white blood cell of the immune system is also trapped (yellow). A clot forms when a blood vessel is injured or diseased. A clot that forms inside a blood vessel may lead to a heart attack if it blocks a heart artery. Magnification: x4, 200 at 6x7cm size. x2, 100 at 35mm size
