In an effort to investigate the interior structure of Hot Molecular Cores we have imaged the G31.41+0.31 region at a wavelength of 7 mm with subarcsecond angular resolution. Our observations fully resolve the Hot Molecular Core and we detect an elongated structure, which we discuss in terms of an accretion disk scenario, as well as a binary scenario. This work is partially supported by Research Corporation grant Nr. CC4996 and NSF grant AST-0098524.
