MRI Scans of Vegetables and Fruits

How cool is this! MRI scans of a variety of fruits and vegetables. We just can't stop looking at them.

Scanning an orange to test his machine's settings, Andy Ellison, an MRI tech at Boston University School of Medicine, was amazed by the resulting image. And so began scanning more and more fruit, vegetables and plants.

Here's a sample of some of our favourites. We've shown 19 of them and posted what they are at the bottom of the page. See how many you can get right! Let us know how you got on...
