Caption: Healthy brain. Coloured computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan of an axial section through a healthy brain from a 70-year-old man. The front of the brain is at the bottom of the frame. Coloured black (at centre) are the cerebrospinal fluid- filled lateral ventricles with occipital horns (V- shaped). Between the horns (blue) is the longitudinal fissure which separates the two cerebral hemispheres (orange). CT scanning combines the use of a computer and fine X-ray beams to produce images of "slices" through the brain or other body parts. The scans produce good contrast between soft tissues and bone and are useful in diagnosing tumours and blood clots.
