Caption: Brain in skull. Coloured three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) scan of the top of the human brain seen within the skull. The right cerebral hemisphere is seen intact (at top left), with surface convolutions. Scan data of the left cerebral hemisphere have been excluded, showing beneath it, structures of the limbic system and ventricles. The orbital, nasal and jaw regions of the skull are seen. CT scanning combines the use of a computer and X-rays passed through the body to produce cross-sectional images of body tissue. Here, data from multiple "slices" through skull & brain have been combined to form this three- dimensional view.
