  8. Have you tried DTI? If you can do a DTI sequence I can reconstruct it for you - let me know.

  9. I've been getting a kick out of seeing which foods have 5-fold symmetry and which, like this one, have 3-fold symmetry. The spiral arms leading out to the seeds were a surprise... ooh, and I just noticed, they look like Fibonacci spirals too! (Math in nature, whee!)

  11. How about posting the DICOM datasets? There's some good open source DICOM viewers like Osirix that people could use to fly through them every which way...

  14. I love this idea! It is true that food can heal us, and irradicate some disease. This is a great idea. Wondering about garlic, avacado, spinach and honey - these are the big healers...hemp too.

  15. This image is missing but I remember it well. I like the way the MRI reveals the swirling patterns within the fruit.

  16. By far, my favorite. The seeds look like coiled strands of Christmas tree lights!
