Caption: Brain MRI scans. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of sagittal sections of the human head showing a healthy brain. The face is at left in each. The scans are a series, each one being slightly further across the head than the last. An eyeball (white) is visible in the second to fifth scans (upper centre to lower centre). The brainstem (white), which connects the brain to the spinal cord, is visible running downwards in the third to fifth scans. Thin slices close together are combined to create three-dimensional models. Models such as these are very useful as diagnostic tools. MRI uses radio waves to penetrate tissues, building a picture of internal structures.
