  2. 2. Brain PET (Positron Emission Tomography) scans show localized glucose uptake. A PET scan can discern metabolically active tumors previously revealed in more detail with an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). Photo: aboutcancer.com
  3. 3. FUNCTIONAL NEUROCOGNITIVE IMAGING fMRI detects changes in neural activation while a patient is performing a cognitive test, providing a three dimensional map of brain regions that are used to perform the test. Photo: cognitivefxusa.com
  4. 4. Diffusion Tensor Imaging White matter fiber tracts seen with syngo DTI Tractography. The technique depends on water molecule interactions across membranes and other cell structures. Photo: usa.healthcare.siemens.com
  5. 5. Brain A 2.5-foot replica of a 3-D computer Diffusion Tensor image of the brain’s white matter for an exhibition at the Franklin Institute.. Image: American Precision Prototyping
  6. 6. GLASS BRAIN “….a state-of-the-art real-time brain visualization technology that is created on the Unity 3D game-engine and powered by NVIDIA’s GPU computing. Its inputs include an individual’s brain structure, both tissue and fiber tract architecture, obtained from high-resolution MRI-DTI brain scans. Real-time brain activity and functional interactions among networks are superimposed on the brain structure using high-density EEG (electroencephalography). Photo: neuroscape.ucsf.edu
