I NEED TO COLOUR MY HEAD IN, can anyone help?
« on: 23/08/2011 18:46:42 »
Hey guys, unusual request I know... [:I]
But do any of you have enough knowledge of the human head/brain, to help me decipher what part is which on this MRI scan of the inside of my head.
I would like to colour each individual organ/part/bit, a different colour to make it into a picture.
I suppose you would have to download it and highlight which part is which.
I don't mind serious or humorous notations of the varying parts, I just would like this image on my wall :)
I was absolutely fascinated by the MRI images, incredible technology
Many thanks
 ;)

That is a median sagittal brain section (you can google image search on that for hundreds of diagrams - there is a great and easily read diagram here

Thank you imatfaal.

There were loads of brain diagrams I could follow for the brain part.

Thanks for you time in helping me.
 :)

I am still having trouble deciphering the left side of the face, I think I can single out the tongue, but is anyone else out there able to separate the features on the nose side of the diagram for me?

Many thanks

Bear in mind that a bog standard MRI only has a resolution of about half a millimeter,
so the presence or absence of hair-size things, like hair, cannot be determined from such an image.
