Caption: Healthy brain. Coloured three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) scan of the side of a human head with a healthy brain projected onto it. The largest part of the brain, the folded cerebrum (at upper centre), is seen. This carries out conscious brain activity and is shown as a three-dimensional (3-D) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. CT scanning uses X-rays to produce 'slice' images of the body. Here, data from many 'slices' have been combined to create this 3-D view. The image was taken at Siemens Corporate Research Center in Princeton, USA. It was produced with new imaging software that enables 3-D scans to be freely rotated, aiding in medical diagnosis and surgery.
