Included is a QuickTime movie of a 256-slice brain MRI.
Instead of being put off by the advertising implications of these pages, why not look at them as apprentice pages. This spot on the Web is a marvelous small tutorial from the real world of medicine on how to obtain and manipulate images of the living brain.
