Abstract:
The Visible Human Project began with the Visible Man. This video is about the Visible Woman, an unidentified caucasian woman who died at 59 of a heart attack. Dr. Victor Spitzer of the University of Colorado, the project director, accepted the cadaver and filmed it with a 3-D MRI. The body was then frozen and sliced into 5,189 paper-thin layers as compared to 1,878 layers for the Visibile Man. The result is a virtual 3-D human. Dr. Michael Ackerman, project liaison for the National Library of Medicine, describes how the project originated and its purpose. A high school teacher in Colorado explains how he uses the Visible Human in class, and his students report on their impressions. Greg Andorfer, Director of the Maryland Science Center, wants to set up an exhibit on the Visible Woman to accompany that of the Visible Man at the Science Center.
