Full Body MRI

Have you ever wondered what horizontal cross sections of the human body look like? Here is an animation of a full-body MRI from head to toe! Don’t blink or you’ll miss a vital organ. Link -via Blame It On The Voices

Update: According to several commenters, the images used in this animation are from The Visible Human Project and were taken from a deceased body, using MRI and CT scans and cryogenic cross sections. That body belonged to 39-year-old Joseph Paul Jernigan, who was executed for murder and had donated his body to science.

Back when I was in school, about 8 years ago, I used the images from 'The Visual human' project to re-create a 3-D model of the man. Trace the skin, extrude a spline, repeat using the next slide. Made a pretty complex looking 3-D mesh. Fun project, now I'm wanting to go dig it up out of my archives and look at it again.
