Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) image of the brain of person suffering from an acoustic neuroma, a tumour which occurs between the inner ear & the brain, growing from the fibrous coverings of a peripheral nerve. In this image the growth appears as the yellow region on the right side of the brain. Also visible are the eyes (top); the vitreous humour in the eyeballs appears red in the left eye, yellow in the right. The colour coding represents a parameter in NMR imaging known as T1 (relaxation time), with blue a short T1 & red a larger T1 value.
