1348. Does an MRI work in the same way as a copier (or puts you in a magnetic field and copies an image of your body)?
No, an MRI uses a very different technique for imaging your body. A copier uses light to examine the original document while an MRI machine uses the magnetic responses of hydrogen atoms to map your body.
