Caption: 3-D Coloured Tractography Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) brain scan of a patient aged 36 with an oligodendroglioma brain tumour (cancer, at centre) in the parietal region of the left hemisphere of the cerebrum. This cancer does not spread but damages the brain as it grows. Here, this tractography scan reveals how nerve fibres (red, yellow) have been affected by the tumour, in particular how one nerve fibre tract arcs around the tumour then deviates downwards. The PET scan at lower right shows blood flow around the tumour (arrowed, blue).
