Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Magnetic resonance imaging or MRI is a type of medical imaging technology used to create 2D slide images of the human body, cut in cross section from any angle. The images are produced by the use of magnetic fields to align susceptible atoms in the body. This alignment is then manipulated to cause a pulsing effect that can be read by a magnetic sensor. Different body tissues pulsate at different frequencies, due to their atomic composition, creating the images.

Doubts have been raised, over the accuracy of many fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) studies, used to decode the information in the brain.
Industry news, originally posted 23-02-2005. A study by UCLA neuroscientists featuring functional magnetic resonance imaging has for the first time found evidence that mirror neurons help people understand the intentions of others.
When it comes to using chemical or radioactive markers to make parts of the brain easier to see, and more finely detailed with a magnetic resonance scan, your options have been rather limited.
As the demands for precise imaging in fields such as medicine, astronomy, and real-time machine vision in hostile environments continue to increase, so the demands placed on imaging equipment become ever more stringent. An imaging method based on Single Photon Avalanche Photodiodes (SPAD) offers the potential to ease this bottleneck greatly.
