Healthy brain. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans through a man's head, showing the brain in sagittal (side) view. There are 110 scans, taken from the right side of the head at ear level (top left) through to the left side (lower right). Inside the skull the cerebrum of the brain appears convoluted (blue), with soft tissues of the neck, mouth and nose pink. The profile of the face is seen, as are the rounded eyeballs. MRI scanning creates "slice" images through the body using radio waves and a powerful magnetic field. It is useful in detecting brain tumours and cancer.
