Medical Breakthrough!

"The Mummy" would have been cooler if they knew about this sooner >>LInk<<

That's really spooky!

It's more a medical breakthrough than an animation breakthrough. What's amazing is that this new Xray shows muscle and tissue in detail, and even in the right color. Normal Xray picks up bone very well, but usually fails with tissue.

Wouldn't it be spooky to have one of these scans of yourself. It spooks us because then we can see that we are just mere mortals. Flesh and blood.

If anything, this will take jobs away from 3D artists. A lot of people have jobs making medical 3D animations for doctors and medicos. These animations are used for lectures and training. The doctors won't need these so much any more, as they'll have lots of scans of the real thing.

Control the media and you control the people

Yeah but it is unlikely that the doctor will be able to make a nifty presentation out of it by himself

Amazing! This makes some of our persuits seem a little trivial doesn't it?

Actually, With the right optimization tool. It could be use for animation. Discovery Channel sure is going to be fun to watch

Yes that is creepy. I imagine we will see use of this tech in movies and medical shows soon.

X-Ray Mode

How long before CSI uses it on their show I wonder? Doesn't make for a very flattering picture does it?

Wow! thatís amazing (if a bit creepy!) - 11 seconds for a whole scan as well. I wonder how long it'll be for real-time scanning? I don't know much about anatomy, but I'm sure real-time updates of the human body would help a lot in diagnosis
