NPR blogger Scott Hensley featured a story about a MRI machine made out of Legos. Check it out on their website, it is hilarious. I won't ever be able to look at the machine the same way again.

Thanks for sharing that, I am quite sure it will be in my head the next time I have to endure an MRI, CT or PET scan which just may result in me smiling a bit more than I normally would during those dern scans.

I'm going in for a CT scan next week. I think I can use this image while I'm in there

Doesn't the scanned version view the lego person head first going in and the other the feet first? Maybe I'm seeing it wrong? My kids loved legos.
