Science & Technology
Everything science is and does from the laboratory to the real world
Science images provided by leading institutions, computer graphic artists and photographers with specialist equipment. These include engineering, biology and technology images.
X-ray computed tomography (CT) scanning is an established diagnostic technique, but new advances in data handling have taken it to a new level. In Sweden’s Linköping Hospital, Dr Anders Persson and his team are developing new ways of automatically visualising bones and body tissues in fantastic detail. This revolution in 3D visualisation will impact many areas of medicine.
To help to create an understanding of all things science, we offer an educational side of our collection with these simple and effective science images. We look at magnesium ribbon burning in air and dry ice vaporising at room temperature to the breakdown of the adrenaline molecule, the use of iodine in detecting the presence of starch and the transpiration in celery stalks.
