An MRI Wind Tunnel
Researchers at the University of New Brunswick (Canada)
have invented a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) method for imaging
fluids moving at high speeds inside an MRI scanner. With their "MRI
wind tunnel," they measured the flow past a wing at an average
speed of about 40 km/h. Panel (A) shows the measurement in the MRI wind
tunnel; (B) shows the results of a computer calculation.
