Caption: Lungs. Sequence of six coloured axial CT (computed tomography) scans through the upper chest of a 52- year-old woman. The front of the chest is at top, and the right of the body is at left. The sequence moves down through the body as it runs from left- right along top then bottom. The two lungs (dark blue) and their branching airways (bronchioles, light blue) are separated by the mediastinal area (centre). This contains the trachea (blue circle) that splits into the two lung bronchi (images 4- 6). Major blood vessels (orange, upper centre) lead to the top of the heart (seen in images 4-6). The bone (dark orange) of the spine (lower centre) and ribs (surrounding the lungs) is also seen.
