Caption: Brain tumour. 3D model of the head (side view) of a 59-year-old woman, made up from numerous MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans. The front of the head is at right. The model is showing the internal structures of the right-hand side of the head, revealing the brain (white), and blood vessels (red). A large brain tumour, a benign (non-cancerous) meningioma, can be seen in blue at the back of the brain. Meningiomas are most often benign and arise from the meninges, the protective membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord. As it grows, a meningioma compresses adjacent brain tissue, and symptoms, such as headaches, are often related to this compression. Usually the tumour can be removed surgically, although radiotherapy may also be needed.
