Visible Human Project

Scientists in America are about to start slicing up a "perfect" male human corpse - and later a "perfect" female. Funded by the US National Library of Medicine, they are doing this in the interests of medical education and science. The corpses will be scanned at every level using both X-ray scanning (CT tomography) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI); and the milled slices of the corpse will also be photographed and digitised. The data from these optical, X-ray and magnetic images will form the basis of a 2-D and 3-D database of the human body which will be made available via computer, CD-ROM discs, and other means to the medical and educational communities in the US and elsewhere.
