    That looks more like a computer simulation or something....I can`t think of any medical means of getting an image like that. I`m really curious how they took it. I looked up the articles and it doesn`t say anything more about that image (has same pics)

    Herpderp, because it IS a computerized image.

Of course the picture could have been manipulated afterwards to create better contrast.

    It`s a CT scan that is made into 3d image w/ software. It aids radiologist and surgeons a lot with visualizing the problem. The software simply requires setting the density for bone material, and then determines what color other material should be. Here is a video integrating kinect sensor. (i`m gonna submit this as well)

    I like how the first response mocked me and gave a stupid answer, then some others actually answered intelligently. the enhanced CT scan explanation makes the most sense.

    @Grindinblade - Thanks for the link but I think their title of "Kinect Sensor Allows Surgeons to Manipulate 3D CT Images in Midair " is misleading. It`s not in mid-air it`s on a normal monitor, and all they are using the kinect for is to replace basic mouse functions, but without the same detailed level of control that a mouse provides. It`s a case of them using a kinect to solve a problem that doesn`t exist.

    Agreed Listypoos that title is misleading, but medical personnel aren`t always the most update in the tech field outside of medicine. Actually the application is quite useful in the OR where they can`t break sterile field. Giving the surgeon more ability to manipulate the image as he needs.

    @naz2k55 The technique can be done with CT or MRI. I believe this here is a CT due to what appears to be two metal rings at the waist area.

    It`s a 3D reformatted CT scan. 1- Because that`s what they look like, and 2- Sensation 64 is a model of CT scanner (Siemens, I think).

    That is definitely CT scan. MRI doesn`t result in enough soft tissue/bone density differentiation to view bones that well. Also MRIs are used mainly for brain imaging and tendons, CTs would be more commonly used for abdominal imaging here. Finally without a doubt sideshow is right, Sensation 64 is a CT scanner, not MRI. Seriously what do they teach in czech med schools?

    @grindinblade fine sensation 64 is a ct scan, but we always used MRI on the abdomen as you know its much better for soft tissues so it would have made sense to use it here in my opinion

    @naz2k55 - MRI scans are most often used for images inside the skull and spinal column, not on the abdomen. MRIs are much more expensive than a CT scan, and a CT scan can see the tissues in the abdomen just fine because there are no major bones blocking it. Hence why CT scans are used for the abdomen.

    naztk55, MRI is used for head, spine, and joint damage. It is generally not used for abdomen...I don`t know why you would as it is much more expensive and offers no advantage over CT for abdomen scans.

    CT Scans

    MRIs work by aligning the water molecules in the direction of the field. Furthermore, because MRIs do work on the water molecules and the spins of the two hydrogen nuclei, MRIs work best on areas with many hydrogen nuclei and little density, such as brain, muscle, connective tissue, most tumors, etc. MRI doesn`t work as well on bones. MRI scans are uses mostly for soft tissue issues, such as looking at bursal sacs, tendons, tumor formations or brain tissue (for clots, strokes, etc.).

    The above pictures are from a CT scan, which is the computer processing of a large series of x-ray images taken from a single axis of rotation. When you`re in a CT scanner, the machine that moves around you is an x-ray machine. The computer puts the pictures together.

    "I wonder how much they pay someone to do that. Anyone ever muled before?"

    They dont usually get paid. Thats why they are mules. If they get caught, they go free due to the fact that most mules are forced into carrying this poo through death threat, a kidnapped family or some other circumstance. Since I do not see a single busted rubber in there, its safe to assume this mule said something looking for asylum.

    No one has a problem with medical images getting put on the internet? Didn`t someone have to violate a HIPAA protocol, or something, to make these available? Well, maybe not HIPAA, as this person probably didn`t have insurance, but... It`s a scumbag eat scumbag world, I guess.
