So I got the raw 3d MRI source files from the hospital. Then I got the software needed to view the MRI in 3d. It let me rotate, slice, and even colorize the images. So **I** generated these images from the raw MRI. It shows my kidney, heart, and skeleton from 4 different angles fully colorized. How cool is that!

I also included some of just the heart and kidneys on its own from the same scan.

@freemo Sir, you appear to have a skeleton inside you. It's terminal. You have, at best, to live until 100 years old before the skeleton kills you.

@freemo That is incredibly awesome. Like colorizing old black and white films and now MRI.. Very cool! I wonder is all of our kidneys are not evenly position like that..LOL??

@MiaDees I am nt sure how much of it is due to how i was laying. But id think its natural for organs to shift position to some degree.

@freemo Yes, I do suppose that is true. I just can't get over how awesome those MRI images were. Like looking directly at the peritoneal cavity contents but without all the blood and fluids in the way. Thanks again for sharing.πŸ€—

@MiaDees I had a similar reaction when I first saw it. It was so cool.

It's consisted normal for the right kidney to be lower than the left.

(It's because the liver sits in the way on the right side.)

@freemo I've had a couple CT scans done recently - I wonder if they'd give me the data here in Canada, too. Neat!

@kithop You'd have trouble doing a volumetric render on ct scans. They dont give you the resolution you really need.

Hell you cant even get soft tissue with an MRI unless you use contrast.

That's fantastic. Can you convert it into a 3d printable format?

@y6nH I havent tried, but im sure there must be a way. There data is surely there to make it possible. The question isnt if it is possible the question is just how much hacking you'd have to do in order to make it happen.

The company I work for actually does metal 3d printing of surgical implants, and they won't even let us print life-size titanium replicas of our own skulls, buddy.

@y6nH why wont they "let" you? i mean i would think if you are willing to pay for the cost they shouldnt really care either way.

I mean, they won't just let us do it for a laugh. Everything's possible if you have enough money.

@freemo Doc, I gotta say, these are some of the weirdest nudes.

@freemo It's just not the same if you don't do it in see-through.

@freemo this is really awesome. did you write the software for all this?

@freemo That is super amazing.

... Okay, I want to do this with my MRIs.

@freemo your spine doesn't look straight , scoliosis ?

These are really awesome.

Out of curiosity, what software did you use to visualize this?

@arteteco Thats what the doctor said, its a very serious medical condition where your insides are made of pain rather than blood and bone.

@freemo now we could say that we know you deeply πŸ˜‚
Very cool view of your inner body. Technology is starting to be similar to Star Trek's spaceship infirmary. I supouse that this can not be done in high resolution real time scannining, but it would be very cool. I wish you to be all right, healty!

@freemo This is cool. is this new tech then i know MRI isn't but this seems to be a new level of imaging / resolution.

@zleap nah, this data would be availible in most MRI data, you just need to render it.

@freemo I had an MRI from my head as part of an experiment about 20 years ago, and at the time I used 'mricron' to render it. (See my avatar.) What software did you use here?

@freemo So, is it time to convert them to STL files and 3d print your innards?

@freemo Hello Sir, I am sorry to correct you but the 3D volume here is from a CT scan. Maybe you attached pics from the previous diagnostic examination, a CT from 2009, they give you also quite some xray dose ;)

@haimoptysis I am far from an expert in this matter to disagree with you. I presume you know...

But as memory serves I have never had a CT in my life, I know what the machine looks like, and I know what an MRI looks like and they were quite explicit about the fact that I was going into an MRI.

Is it possible a CT looked identical to a MRI (fulliy encloised chamber and all that)

@freemo the image says it is from Feb 25, 2009 Methodist hospital (USA, I guess). Your name is there, so this is you, it is a CT with contract, and you can see the voltage and ampere utilized 120kV/351mA. You rendered the CT scan using Osirix.

@haimoptysis Hmmm that is very interesting... obviously i dont know enough to disagree, so i got something wrong somewhere along the way. I do appreciate you clarifying... Either i got a CT and dont remember.. or I got a CT and it looked like an MRI annd I was mistaken.

@freemo indeed my intention was simply to help and point you in the right direction. Maybe you simply opened the wrong DICOM folder. Additionally you mentioned MR as far superior in resolution (spatial), actually it is the other way around, CT is the champ for spatial resolution at high acquisition speed, while MR excels is in contract resolution.

@haimoptysis Oh that is very interesting indeed. What is "contract resolution"... i love hearing some input from someone who knows about this, I was just playing around really.

@freemo in essence as you can easily understand "spatial resolution" as ability to differentiate two separate points, "contrast resolution" is the ability to differentiate two different tissue density.

@haimoptysis Ahhh this makes total sense... Thanks so much.. keep this stuff coming :)

@freemo @haimoptysis very interesting exchange, as I had some imaging done last week, but mine was ultrasound…

@lucifargundam Looks down at his penis.... Ohhhhh so thats what that thing is!!!

@freemo, can't see any of the pictures anymore. I wonder if they were deleted from the original server?

@freemo, curious, something wrong with the federation then I guess...

@terokeskivalkama Possibly, images to have a tendency to get rate limited sometimes.

@freemo, I wonder why the client doesn't retry from the original server...

@freemo, the images are from 2018 though, so I wonder if few minutes more will make a difference. :D
