Caption: Oligodendroglioma brain tumour. Coloured coronal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan through the brain of an 11-year-old girl who has an oligodendroglioma. This malignant tumour (cancer) arises from a type of glial (support) cell of the brain called an oligodendrocyte. This type of cell forms the sheath around axons in the brain and spinal cord. The cancer is in the brain's left parietal lobe (upper right). This cancer does not spread, but will damage the brain if not treated by surgery, radiotherapy or anti-cancer drugs. This is a T2-weighted MRI scan, without injection of gadolinium.
