Human spine. Coloured SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography) scan showing three views of the human spine. The patient is seen from the front (top right), side (bottom left) and in transverse section (top left). The box at lower right gives an indication of the different axis of study. The bones of the spine have absorbed a radioactive tracer which glows under a gamma scanner, the highest concentrations of tracer glow yellow, then red and light blue. The front and side views show the bones of the whole lumbar and part of the thoracic spine. The transverse view gives a cross-section of a single vertebra.
