Caption: False-colour Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) of a mid-sagittal section through a human head, showing structures of a normal brain, airways & facial tissues. The heavily-folded cerebral cortex (the grey matter), which forms the outer part of the cerebrum, is coloured green, yellow & red. The white oval feature in centre of image is part of the brainstem, which is continuous with spinal cord (red, yellow & green) below it. Unlike computed tomography (CT) scanning, MRI (also called NMR - Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) does not rely on potentially harmful ionising radiation to construct an image.
