Strange Porn: Life Seen Through (MRI) Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Incredible footage was created using hundreds of MRI scans. It exposes every detail of an intimate moment, starting with the heart beating faster as two people kiss. 

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (NMRI), or magnetic resonance tomography (MRT) is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to investigate the anatomy and physiology of the body in both health and disease.
MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields and radiowaves to form images of the body. The technique is widely used in hospitals for medical diagnosis, staging of disease and for follow-up without exposure to ionizing radiation
Watch the full video here. Warning this video shows graphic images of a sexual nature.
Unlike X-rays and CAT scans, Magnetic Resonance Imaging doesn’t use harmful radiation so it can take more pictures. It produces detailed images through magnetic fields that map the position of water molecules, which exist at different densities in different types of tissue.However this video is a mash-up of various different MRI scans including a couple French couple, a baby in the womb, a horn player blowing his instrument and someone swallowing pineapple juice. 
‘Taking magnetic resonance images (MRI) of the male and female genitals during coitus is feasible and contributes to understanding of anatomy.’
And the scientific reason for filming the ‘insides’ of a man and woman during their most intimate moment? ‘To find out whether taking images of the male and female genitals during coitus is feasible and to find out whether former and current ideas about the anatomy during sexual intercourse and during female sexual arousal are based on assumptions or on facts,’ according to the British Medical Journal. This is perhaps something you don’t want to see in the morning as you tuck into your Corn Flakes. An MRI scan of a couple during sex.

MRI has a wide range of applications in medical diagnosis and there are estimated to be over 25,000 scanners in use worldwide. MRI has an impact on diagnosis and treatment in many specialties although the effect on improved health outcomes is uncertain. Since MRI does not use any ionizing radiation its use is recommended in preference to CT when either modality could yield the same information. MRI is in general a safe technique but the number of incidents causing patient harm have risen. Contraindications to MRI include most cochlear implants and cardiac pacemakers, shrapnel and metallic foreign bodies in the orbits, and some ferromagnetic surgical implants. The safety of MRI during the first trimester of pregnancy is uncertain, but it may be preferable to alternative options.
