Hypothalamic peptides also play an important role in controlling the release of anterior pituitary hormones.
CT uses X-rays to construct sections of the brain or spine based on their attenuation by the tissues they traverse. This attenuation is proportional to the electron density of the tissue. Since most lesions either increase the intra- or extracellular water or change the cellular density of tissues they can be visualized by changes in electron density. This is depicted in a gray scale of Hounsfield units (H) which range from the highest attenuation (brightest) of ϩ1000 H for calcium or cortical bone to the darkest of Ϫ1000 H for air.
