Caption: Brain scan. Coloured scintigram of a normal human brain in vertical (left) and horizontal section. The green line on the left shows the position of the horizontal (transverse) section. Red and white show areas of high activity; blue shows areas of low activity. Scintigrams show the pattern of gamma rays emitted by a radioactive tracer introduced into the body. The tracer is taken up in different amounts by different tissues, and produces a distinctive image in organs that are functioning incorrectly. The blue areas in this brain are the fluid-filled cerebral ventricles. The tracer used was technetium (99mTc). See M136/ 074 for comparison with brain after stroke.
