Caption: Heart. Coloured 3D computed tomography (CT) scan of the heart and its blood vessels. The heart is seen slightly from above, with the main chamber (red, lower right) having small blood vessels (the coronary arteries, cream) on its surface. These small blood vessels originate from the aorta (main body artery, top centre). The structures towards upper right and centre left are blood vessels that bring blood to and from the heart. The heart is a hollow muscular organ that pumps blood around the body. The coronary arteries supply the heart muscle with oxygenated blood. CT scanning uses multiple X-ray beams to scan the body at different angles. Computers use this to create a 3D image.
