Caption: Animation of a patient in an MRI scanner undergoing a brain scan to detect a tumour. He has taken a glucose-rich drink, which has been selectively magnetised by the scanner. This correspondingly reduces the signal received from water, and the difference allows visualisation of regions of high glucose uptake, as occurs in tumours. See clips K004 4130-4134 for the full sequence.
