Definitions for "Brain Imaging"
Any technique that permits the invivo visualization of the substance of the central nervous system. These include: computerized axial tomography (CT) commonly called the CAT scan. Two other methods: positron-emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), based on different principles, also yield a series of two-dimensional images of brain regions.
technology used to create images of the structure or function of the brain; computed tomography, positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging.
Techniques - Recently developed, noninvasive techniques for studying the activity of living brains. Includes brain electrical activity mapping (BEAM), computerized axial tomography (CAT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
