This Weekly Dose of Woah is an oldie, but goodie.

If you’ve ever had an MRI, you know that they let you see 3D images of the body and brain.

Well, one clever MR technician decided to put vegetables and fruit in the scanner. The result was a stunning (and honestly quite psychedelic) set of images.

You can see the different fruit/vegetables below.

The images are “slices” of each image, moving through slice-by-slice of the fruit, creating a very fractal-like pattern.

Did these fruit and vegetable MRIs make you say “woah“?
