Have some Celery


This is a maximum-intensity projection of a 3D image of celery, taken with a 1.5T Siemens scanner (Martinos Center Bay 2). The motion-blur-like effects are due to the projection along the stalk axis, which is amazingly straight, but not perfect. These images were taken in the hope that celery would exhibit anisotropic diffusion. Unfortunately, the diffusion appears to be quite isotropic, and the T2 of celery is so short as to make diffusion imaging extraordinarily difficult.
