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!
