Caption

Lungs and heart. Coloured Computed Tomography (CT) scan through the chest of a female patient in front view. The image shows healthy lungs and heart overlaid with the intended planes of the next cross sectional image, the "slices" range from 0-25 from top to bottom. The lungs (purple) are seen within the ribcage and the heart (at centre, orange) is between the lungs, lying partly inside the lung field at right. The diaphragm which separates the chest from the abdomen is seen at lower frame. Spine bones run from the neck (at top) down the middle of the image. A CT scan is made using X-rays to produce "slice" images through the body.
