Image Shows The Inside Of The Entire Human Body, From Top To Bottom

This awesome GIF shows the entire human body, from top to bottom, in just over ten seconds. Scientists made extremely thin slides of the body, encasing them in gelatin before freezing and photographing each one individually.

A video from Touch of Life Technologies on Youtube states that the cadaver was imaged from head to toe with MRI and CT equipment on August 5th, 1993, for The Visible Human Project.

According to the video, “The cadaver was encased in blue gelatin and frozen to -160 degrees Fahrenheit. A custom-designed tool was used to remove one millimeter sections of the rock hard block, revealing slice by slice the beauty and detail within. After each pass, high-resolution color digital photographs were taken of the remaining block.”

In total, 1,878 images were taken and displayed in rapid succession to show the internal structure of the human body.
