High Definition Future of Body Scanning
Amazing Animated GIFS show Stunning Detail

Doctors at a Florida hospital get up close to bones, organs and veins, without making a single cut.

General Electric released images of a next generation body scanner that captures bones, blood vessels and organs in high-definition.

Patients sit inside a scanner, dubbed “Revolution CT,” where a fan-shaped beam of x rays passes down their bodies and a computer reconstructs a digital model of the body, slice-by-slice. The scanner can build an image of a heart in the time it takes for a single heartbeat, according to GE.

The snapshots below, provided by GE, were taken from living patients at West Kendall Baptist Hospital in south Florida, the first hospital to test the new scanner in the field.
