Brain Scan

The image or act of obtaining an image of the human brain using one or many current methods: magneto resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear magneto resonance (NMR), positron emission tomography (PET), or computed tomography (CT). In the future, nanobots may be used to scan the brain internally. Given sufficient resolution of neuronal features, it may be possible to reverse engineer the human brain using scanning technology.
