Caption

Coloured 3-D magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a head and brain and a surgical probe (yellow) on the surface of the head. This probe is used to locate tumours. The scan is used in virtual reality assisted surgery. This virtual image is superimp- osed onto an image of the patient's head. During surgery new MRI scans are taken so that the image can be adjusted to locate the precise place of the tumour. The probe is followed so its position in relation to the tumour and other structures can be seen in the image. The tumour can thus be removed with minimum damage to the brain.
