A new kind of scanner which which has been likened to "100 MRIs in one" has been developed by a team at the University of Aberdeen.
Patients in Scotland have become the first in the world to be scanned with the Fast Field Cycling magnetic resonance imaging equipment.
The aim is extract more information than a traditional MRI by switching the strength of the scanner's magnetic field during the procedure.
It was developed over 10 years.
Magnetic resonance imaging uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the body.
