This Siemens MRI Scanner Is a Beautiful Machine That Saves Lives
As you probably know, MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields and radio waves in order to create images of the body, without harmful ionizing radiation. Their goal is to investigate the anatomy and physiology of all your tissues. The brain researchers who introduced their shiny new gadget - bought for solely research purposes - said that now they can sit in the best race car in the "Science Formula One": it is fast, it is robust, it is powerful*.
It's also more precise because it has very high resolution, and is thus capable of more satisfying image quality. That means neuroscientists can obtain better real time information about anatomical connections within the living brain - gathering data that will one day save lives and minds.
*(MRI scanners generate a magnetic field that is strong and uniform at the same time, and the field strength is measured in Tesla. Most of the MRI systems typically operate at 1.5 Tesla.)
This device looks fantastic. I'd call it the iPod of all "MRI players". Just look at it:
