Caption: Heart and lungs, CT scan. Coloured 3-D computed tomography (CT) scan of the heart (lower centre) and lungs. The vena cava, aorta and pulmonary artery are visible emerging from the top of the heart. The internal heart chambers are visible within the heart. The blood vessels of the lungs are visible to the left and right sides of the heart. The rib cage surrounds the lungs. This image was produced using a multi-slice CT scanner, which uses a thin X-ray beam to scan around the patient collecting data from different angles to create 'slices' of the body. OsiriX medical imaging software was used to create a coloured three-dimensional image from the data.
