World's most powerful MRI scans first images of human brain

April 03, 2024

The world's most powerful MRI scanner has delivered its first images of human brains, reaching a new level of precision that is hoped will shed more light on our mysterious minds -- and the illnesses that haunt them. On a computer screen, Vignaud compared images taken by this mighty scanner, dubbed Iseult, with those from a normal MRI. "This world-first will allow better detection and treatment for pathologies of the brain," she said in a statement to AFP. The United States and South Korea are working on similarly powerful MRI machines, but have not yet started scanning images of humans. The strong magnetic field created by the MRI will give a clearer image of which parts of the brain are targeted by lithium.
