Glioma brain tumour. Sequence of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) coronal scans showing the internal structure in the head of a 44-year-old woman with a high-grade glioma. This is a frontal view, with the sequence moving through the head from the rear to the front. A glioma is a tumour that arises from the supportive glial cells of the brain or spine. This tumour is located in the middle of the right frontal lobe, which is towards the front and top of the brain, at upper left in this view. The tumour appears briefly just before the middle of the clip, as a light grey mass just left of top centre. Symptoms reported by the patient included an increasing number of headaches and personality changes.
