Real-time MRI music video

Real-time magnetic resonance imaging (rtMRI) is a fairly new method of rendering images quickly enough to capture the movement of organs or joints. Researchers at the University of Southern California have used the technique to examine how beatboxers produce the sounds of their vocals.

The final production is both entertaining and educational.
