A NYC med student decided to use a research CT scanner to take a peek at the innards of stuff he had lying around, including an iPhone, iBook, and electric razor.

Objects scanned include the electronics we're interested in as well as various toys and food items. There's been no word as yet about what in a Filet O' Fish would turn vomitous shades of teal and magenta, but it's enough to turn me off the square fish sandwich for life.

I hate to be a buzz kill. But poor people in 3rd world countries cant even afford to get a CT Scan coz it cost too expensive to get a scan. I hope that NYC radiologist wont get into trouble when his boss discovers he's been toying around a very expensive piece of medical equipment.
