Bizarre MRI scan of unborn baby looks like Pickle Rick or Mr Bean

Yes, this is an actual baby... Image Credit: Reddit / r/oddlyterrifying
Reddit users were left amused and freaked out in equal measure recently by a weird MRI image of an unborn baby.
Most people will be familiar with what an ultrasound image of an unborn baby looks like, but there are few who have likely ever seen what an unborn baby looks like in an MRI scan.

MRI (or magnetic resonance imaging) uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to build up an image of the inside of the human body and can be very helpful if there is an issue with a pregnancy.

As users on Reddit found out recently, however, MRI scans of an unborn baby can look strange to say the least - mainly due to the way the eyes and brain stand out in the image if the baby is oriented a certain way.

This particular image, which has already received tens of thousands of views on social media, shows a rather peculiar MRI image that is as unnerving as it is amusing.
"Looks like a cursed jelly baby," one user remarked, while another described the images as "eggplant shaped versions of the aliens from Mars Attacks".

Others still believed that the images looked like either Mr Bean or Pickle Rick from Rick and Morty.

"I'm pregnant and I can't stop laughing at these," one expectant mother was quoted as saying.

Suffice to say, you may never think of what a baby looks like in the womb in the same way ever again.

Oh, no! Now that there are more than one of them around, we should be in big trouble. We could, though, slow down Chucky I's baby brother:

I remember seeing SPUDS MCKENZIE in a coronal MRI image.  Coronal is the slices done front to back rather than side to side or top to bottom.  It was hilarious.

Hei tiki represents the first man, therefore in it's foetal form is symbollic of fertility and expectancy and as is genetic information, it is common that hei tiki taonga (treasures) are handed down also from generation to generation
