May 04, 2017Unique images and models of human anatomy – in 3D – invite visitors to come along on a spectacular journey through the body. In the 18th century, highly realistic wax models were lovingly crafted by hand to give people their first-ever look at what lay beneath the skin. Nowadays, image data from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) is used to produce hyper-realistic images of the body on a computer through Cinematic Rendering technology, opening up new insights into the human body. These and other exciting steps in the development of 3D visualization technology from X-ray stereoscopy to 3D printing will be on display in the special exhibition "The Third Dimension" at Siemens MedMuseum in Erlangen, May 4 – June 17, 2017.
