Not exactly fresh from the bakers oven, but still very interesting news for the tech-geeks out there:

The 2008 Lennart Nilsson Award for scientific photography will be presented to Swedish
physician Anders Persson, MD, PhD, in recognition of his innovative techniques for
capturing 3-D images inside the human body. These new techniques have proven
particularly useful for post-mortem imaging, providing invaluable information for
forensic investigation. The prize, now celebrating its 10th anniversary, is considered by
many to be the worldís most prestigious award in scientific and medical photography.
