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 left. The cerebral hemispheres are coloured yellow, with the ventricles blue. The black circles at upper and lower right on the ventricles either side of the brain's midline represent the choroid plexi of blood vessels. The pineal gland appears black and irregularly shaped between them. CT scanning combines the use of a computer and fine X-ray beams to produce images of "slices" through body parts. The scans produce good contrast between soft tissues and bone and are useful in diagnosing tumours and blood clots.
