Sturge-Weber syndrome. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a brain (light blue/orange) with Sturge-Weber syndrome. The brain is seen in horizontal (axial) section, with the front of the brain at top. The brain's fluid-filled ventricles are dark blue. Part of the brain has become calci- fied (orange, lower left). Other symptoms include angioma tumours in the choroid of the eye and the meninges membranes that cover the brain, as well as port-wine nevi on the face and glaucoma of the eye. People with this congenital disorder are mentally handicapped and may suffer from epileptic seizures. MRI uses radio waves and a powerful magnet to produce slice images of the body.
