Researchers at the Max Planck Society say they have discovered how to use MRI to acquire moving images of organs and joints in real time. According to the release:
Up to now, it was therefore almost impossible to image moving organs using MRI. Max Planck researchers from Goettingen have now succeeded in significantly reducing the time required for recording images - to just one fiftieth of a second. With this breakthrough, the dynamics of organs and joints can be filmed "live" for the first time: movements of the eye and jaw as well as the bending knee and the beating heart.
Above is a video of live movements during speech. The findings have been published in the journal NMR in Biomedicine.
