CT Scans as Art

art_ct_scan_blog_july09.JPG Most doctors use CT scans as a medical diagnosis tool, however; one doctor in China has created works of art from these scans. Kai-hung Fung has found a way to combine his career as a diagnostic radiologist with his passion for digital art. One of these scans even won a creative contest by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). His winning artwork depicted a 3-dimensional scan of the human nose and paranasal sinuses, but with a rainbow coloring technique. Patrons at first did not realize that the graphic art they were judging was in fact a real CT Scan. This type of creativity shows the out-of-the-box thinking that many doctors do have. Although this is a more creative approach to new technology, other doctors are always testing current techniques in order to improve them.
