Caption: False-colour nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) image of a coronal (frontal) section through the head of a healthy human subject, showing the division of the cerebrum (the main bulk of the brain) into left and right cerebral hemispheres. Colour-coding of the original black & white scan reveals the outer grey matter of the cerebral cortex in yellow/green and the inner white matter in red. NMR imaging resolves soft body tissues in greater detail than X-ray tomography (CT or CAT scanning) does. Unlike CT scanning, NMR imaging does not use ionising radiation & is therefore believed to be less potentially hazardous than X- ray techniques.
