Caption: False colour computed X-ray tomography (CT) scan of the chest of a healthy woman aged 28 years, showing normal lungs (left & right) with the heart between them. In CT, a narrow X-ray beam is directed through the subject towards a diametrically-opposed detector. A series of "slices" is made, with source & detector moving synchronously around the subject. Measurements of transmitted X-rays are processed by computer to reveal how elements of tissue in each "slice" attenuate X-rays - the basis for constructing the image.
