The Radiology Art project features scans submitted by different folks.
Scans are acquired as DICOM images using a GE CT scanner, then processed in Osirix software on a Macintosh iMac computer. Colors are assigned based on the varying densities of materials present throughout the object. Depending on the spread of densities within a particular subject, black or white backgrounds are chosen. Images are further processed in Adobe Photoshop for proper contrast and balance.

we are a group of radiologists, technologists and artists, who started a new project "Radiology museum", which is dedicated to Radiology art and covers Radiology curiosities, interesting images, equipment, accessories, historical images and historical figures. Anybody who is interested and would like to contribute to this group is welcome to join.
We just created a dedicated group for Radiology art on the Radiology community "Radiolopolis" (www.radiolopolis.com) and would like to invite everybody who is interested to join this endeavour.
We will soon launch a "Radiology museum" website and we would like to combine the ideas and contributions of our group members and maybe you, too. Furthermore, the artwork/contributions will be also displayed and promoted in the Radiology community "Radiolopolis". Not only images but also interesting articles about Radiology art will be offered, why a dedicated Radiology art blog for this project is also envisioned. We are now - in the start phase - searching for potential team members to discuss relevant issues and collect ideas for a great success. The Radiology museum will be launched in June/July this year.
By the way: We came to an agreement with the Journal of Radiology Case Reports (www.JRCR.org) to publish "interesting images", such as radiological artwork on a regular basis with material from our project.
I hope, you are interested in this exciting new endeavour and we would be pleased to welcome you in our team.
