    Cool! Has anyone else seen the documentary about how they made that? *shudder* I`ll never be able to look at a deli slicer the same way again.

    The technic of this film is really easy...I think they`ve used NMR which is Nuclear Magnetic Resonans (I know couse I`m a medical student :P)

    I`m pretty sure they used deli slicer type deal like Lola said. Some convict that was executed donated his body, so they froze him and sliced him little by little. Really kinda gross, but very interesting.

    "Some convict that was executed donated his body, so they froze him and sliced him little by little"

    which was a HUGE deal, cause the family of the victim tried to block it cause it was a way for him to contine to live on through the internet

    I totally agree with kangaroo_md, that was clearly made with some sort of resonating device akin to the MRI, probably the NMR of which she speaks.

    This was made by freezing the body then slicing/grinding off thin layers at a time and taking a picture of the exposed part. There is also one of a woman.

    Sorry kangaroo_md, and AyEcHiHuAhUa... Those are actually slices of a human body. The scenario was exactly what 600Burger explained. (I know cuz I watch too much TV... :P)

    From road*runner`s link:

    In August of 1991 NLM awarded a contract to the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center to create the digital cross-sections of a 39-year old convicted murderer who had donated his body to science. The radiological data was created using commercial MRI and XRAY-CT. Two CT data sets were created: one of the fresh cadaver, the other after the cadaver was frozen. Then, the cadaver was embedded in gelatin, frozen and sliced from head to toe. As each layer was exposed, a color RGB photograph was taken. Over 1800 24-bit images 2048 by 1216 were created.

    Sorry kanga, typpo. And I didn`t say it *wasn`t* sliced, I said I thought it was made with a MRI type device, which, it was. :-)

    i saw the documentary on how it was made, and a friend of mine has the book that shows each individual slice, one on a page...
    the book is neat, but i caught the documentary right at the part where they were sawing the guy up into four big chunks (to make the slicing easier, i guess). my mom and i sat there, horrified/mesmerized for about 20 minutes before we turned it off.
