Clearest Image Of The Human Brain Ever Published

France's Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies Authority (CEA) has presented to the public the clearest image of the human brain obtained with the world's most powerful magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device.

A new study has published the clearest image of the human brain and excited the scientific world.

The French Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies Authority (CEA) said in a written statement that the brain image taken with the MRI device called “Iseult” was the result of more than 20 years of work.

Clearest brain image ever obtained

Within the scope of the studies, the MRI device has been tested on about 20 healthy volunteers in the last few months, the statement said, adding that the clearest brain image was obtained in almost 4 minutes.

In the statement, it was noted that the images taken in a short time with the Iseult MRI machine with 11.7 Tesla magnetic power could take hours to be obtained with devices commonly used in hospitals.

Facilitating the diagnosis of diseases

Nicolas Boulant, Head of the Iseult Project and CEA Research Director, stated in a statement that the research will continue for a few more years in order to obtain higher quality data, and that their goal is to investigate many diseases in the field of psychiatry such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder as well as neurodegenerative diseases by 2026-2030.

The ultra-detailed anatomical information obtained with the Iseult MRI device is expected to help diagnose diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
