The High Court has reserved judgment on a plea by radical cleric Abu Hamza, who is fighting extradition to the US, to have further medical tests.
His QC said an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) brain scan could establish that he is unfit to plead and should not be extradited to face trial on terrorism charges.
Alun Jones QC told two judges in London that Hamza's health is "deteriorating" and he is suffering from long-term depression, inability to concentrate and short-term memory loss.
Sir John Thomas, President of the Queen's Bench Division, said the court would give its ruling at a later date.
