RADIOLOGY ART... THE UNIQUE APPROACH TO EVERYDAY ITEMS.


THE PROJECT
Since the summer of 2007, the Radiology Art project has been underway. This is a project dedicated to the deeper visualization of various objects that hold unique cultural importance in modern society. So far, these objects have included toys, convenience-related foods, and personal electronics.

METHODS
Scans are acquired as DICOM images using a GE CT scanner, then processed in Osirix software on a Macintosh iMac computer. Colors are assigned based on the varying densities of materials present throughout the object. Depending on the spread of densities within a particular subject, black or white backgrounds are chosen. Images are further processed in Adobe Photoshop for proper contrast and balance.

I ABSOLUTELY WOULD LOOOOVE HAVING A GANG OF THESE PRINTS UP IN MY SPOT! ENJOY MY FAVORITES BELOW.
