Caption: Human brain, combined computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET) scans. These are sagittal scans passing vertically through a normal human head as seen from the side. The scans sequence moves sideways through the head, and the order is across the screen from top left to lower right. This is 2-18F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography. FDG is a radioactive tracer that can be used to identify active sites in the body that take up the tracer, in this case the brain.
