For those who want to know the particular history of anatomical research, you are in for a treat. The University of Amsterdam, together with Allard Pierson Museum has just put up a new exhibition: The discovery of man – Anatomy Imagined.
The exhibition depicts the quest of man seeking knowledge of his body, by means of books, prints, preparation and models from the medical collections of the UvA. Some of the collections dated back to the late middle ages. These collections, attracts researchers from all over the world and will be shown this week at the Allard Pierson Museum, Amsterdam.
Personal Space Technologies, will be demonstrating the next-generation way of examining human body, through a autostereoscopic 3D screen (3D without glasses) you can visually “hold” a pumping heart in your hand, and slice it open as in real anatomy experience. The contents are extracted from MRI scan of a human brain, ultrasound images of a patient with heart disease, and CT scan of a baby in the womb, then reconstructed into 3D or 4D(3D+time).
