Day 1: The Journey Begins

An MRI's View

-----------------------------------------------
Viewpoint Diagram

Side View Top View

In the first day's MRI scan you may not be able to see very much, but the image might look like these.

Rings of Yolk Front View

Yolk formation takes about 18 days. During the last 7 or 8 days of yolk development, the yolk is deposited in layers like the rings of a tree. These layers are visible in your MRI images. Yellow yolk is formed during the day and is high in lipid (fat). In the MRI images, yellow yolk appears dark. White yolk is low in fat and is formed during the night. The white yolk appears as narrow, white bands on the MRI images.
