Caption: Healthy cerebellum. Coloured SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) scan of a transverse section through the cerebellum of the brain. This "slice" is taken midway through the cerebellum with its two hemispheres visible at left and right. Colour-coding represents uptake of radio- active substance: yellow (high uptake and high cerebellar activity); red (medium uptake); blue (low uptake). The cerebellum located at the base of the brain maintains posture, balance, and co- ordinates movement. In SPECT scanning a gamma camera detects a radioactive tracer injected into the blood, which here concentrates in the brain.
