Caption: Alzheimer's disease. Coloured Computed Tomography (CT) scan of an axial section through the brain of a person suffering from Alzheimer's disease. With Alzheimer's disease there is widespread destruction of brain tissue leading to abnormally deep folding and brain shrinkage. This is shown by indents in the forebrain (indicated by arrows) and enlargment of the two fluid-filled ventricles (black areas at centre). The disease leads to memory loss, disorientation and is the most common cause of Senile Dementia. The cause of Alzheimer's disease is unknown and there is no cure. CT scanning uses x-rays to produce images of "slices" of the body.
