Cerebral infarction. CT scan, false coloured axiol image.
Dark area in top left quadrant of brain shows damaged brain area. CT scan is similar to an x-ray, indicating areas of differing radio density. In a normal brain the colour distribution would be symmetrical on the left and right sides. Collection: Wellcome Images  Copyrighted work available under Creative Commons by-nc-nd 2.0 UK: England & Wales, see http://images.wellcome.ac.uk/indexplus/page/Prices.html
