Secondary lung cancers. 3D magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of secondary cancers (green) in the lungs (pale pink) of a 3-year-old child. The heart (red) and its blood vessels are also shown. These cancers have spread from a primary liver cancer. This is an advanced scanning program that can distinguish different tissues in a level of detail high enough to detect small, local tumours. This scan was produced at IRCAD, the French research institute for digestive system cancers, in Strasbourg, France.
