Blood flow through the heart Open Access (recommended)

2016 First Place | This pair of images shows a human heart from the front (left) and back (right). This special imaging technique 4D flow MRI captures the heart's blood flow at a single moment in time. The blood colored red is full of oxygen, flowing out to the rest of the body, while the blood colored blue is returning to be re-oxygenated by the lungs. With this technique, researchers can measure the speed and patterns of this flow: yellow and orange streaks move faster than dark red; pale blue moves faster than dark blue. They are examining this particular heart because the patient had surgery (on a heart defect) and they want to help monitor their heart health.
