Magnetic Resonance Microscopy (MRM)
MetadataShow full item record
Magnetic Resonance Microscopy (MRM) is an imaging method that allows the visualization of internal body structures. Using powerful magnets to send energy into cells, MRM picks up signals from inside a specimen and translates them into detailed computer images. MRM is a useful tool for scientists because of its ability to generate digital slices of scanned specimens that can be constructed into virtual 3D images without destroying the specimens. MRM has become an increasingly prevalent imaging technique in embryological studies. Through MRM, the first 3D human embryo images were created as part of the "Multi-Dimensional Human Embryo" project, a public database of three-dimensional embryo images.
