Collage of mixed fruits and vegetables, MRI

Collage of cross sections through various fruits and vegetables (mandarin orange, cabbage, persimmon, kiwi, apple, pear, pomegranate, plum, avocado, strawberry). Ultra-thin virtual slices through the fruit or vegetable were acquired by spin-echo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) which reveals details inside the object without damaging it. The images are digitally coloured where contrast corresponds to MRI signal intensity and hue was changed to match the natural colour of the fruit or vegetable.
