"Created by award-winning photojournalist Alexander Tsiaras and derived from the National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project data, the astonishing digital images in this book are the product of an unusual arrangement. Their subject is a thirty-nine-year-old Texas man convicted of murder and executed in 1993, who had willed his body to science and left that body in peak, unspoiled condition. Members of the Visible Human Project undertook the task of slicing the man's cadaver into one-millimeter layers and then scanning them into a computer. Finally, using the most advanced image-processing techniques, photojournalist/artist Alexander Tsiaras put this extraordinary information back together, creating a stunning work of art." "Through enhanced, high-resolution color images, computer topography, and magnetic resonance imaging, you will demystify the chemistry of the everyday headache and the anatomy of the common cold. You will map the complexities of the sense of vision, meet your two brains, know what the nose knows, and explore the scaffolding of memory." "Body Voyage is a revealing view of what we are. It is an unprecedented glimpse of how medicine is evolving into the next century."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved… (more)
