Exhibit of the Month: Virtual Human Body

 
A visit to this exhibit allows you to interact with the human body like never before. The Virtual Human Body is a unique tool that allows people to explore different structures of the body. Using hand gestures and a 60-inch touchscreen display, viewers can swipe, zoom and slice the images to gain a deeper understanding of the functions and processes inside the human body. The visuals on display were collected using computerized tomography (also known as CT) scan technology that captures a series of image ‘slices’ to create the overall 3D image. It's one more way we make the invisible visible at the Science Mill.
