Fruit Under an MRI Scanner

It’s a little-known fact that MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machines can show you the inside of an apple just as it can show you the insides of your brain.

MRI technologist Andy Ellison used his professional training and access to advanced medical technology to capture cross-sections of various types of fruits and vegetables just like he normally would a human brain. From corn to starfruit, Ellison left no organic matter untouched.

Ellison used a Philips 3 Tesla MRI at the Boston University Medical School to reveal the fascinating guts of produce. It will certainly give you a new outlook on the importance of eating your greens — and your oranges, purples and reds.

Beautiful day today, took a long walk to check out the developing reintegration of traffic on Main St. Also stopped into Market Arcade to check out a small reshowing of Milton Rogovin’s first documentary series and the current show at CEPA. (at Market Arcade)
