Retina Scan

Right-20140625@155858Left-20140625@155918More medical imaging. I present for your consideration the insides of my eyeballs. (Click thumbnails to view original full-size images.) The images shown were taken on Jun 25, 2014 using an Optomap wide-field retina scanner, probably the 200Dx model.

So now I have plausible deniability for anything that I'm alleged to have done on a system using retina scans for biometric authentication...

Dem Bones

The foot-bone's connected to the... whole lot of other stuff, it turns out. I sprained my ankle recently (at fair, whilst doing something completely stupid reasonable and prudent), and got some nifty digital X-rays to make sure nothing was broken. (Nothing was.) Original-resolution lossless PNG also available (1.5MB download). Original DICOM data files on request.

Completing the set of digital medical imaging, here's a set of dental X-rays. (Sorry it's one big wide image; that's as it was sent to me.) At least now, if something goes terribly wrong during my forays into Mad Science, the medical examiner can look to my blog for help in figuring out who I was.

The X-ray source for these images was a handheld emitter, which I didn't have a chance to oogle as much as I'd have liked, but which I believe to be not unlike the Aribex Nomad pictured to the right. Technologically cool, and great old-school Buck Rogers styling.

CAT Scan

More fun and games with medical imaging. I got a lumbar discogram followed by a CAT scan. I was able to get a CD of imaging data from the latter. Gallery of images and some animated 3D visualizations after the cut.

Nuke-u-lar Magnetic Resonance Imaging

You may recall with some indifference my immediately previous post, wherein I mentioned how impressed I was with some paltry digital X-ray images. That, dear reader, was the impression of a younger and more easily awed version of yr. humble narrator.

For I have now been imaged, in the nuclear magnetic resonance manner, known to the vulgar as an MRI.

Beyond the jump are images: 156 of them, with inline thumbnails (so please use discretion and have patience if your link is slow). Despite my earlier unseemly levity about the JT sign, all said images are impeccably safe for work.

Throckmorton Indeterminate

Technology is freakin' amazing.

Thanks to some lower back pain, I got a hands-on experience with digital radiography today. For five bucks -- that's five US dollars -- they gave me a CD with the Dicom image files to take home.

Am I going to share those images? Converted to JPEG format on this very website? You bet I am, after the jump.
