3D Ultrasound of Rusty
11 July 2010
So we went to have some 3D ultrasound images taken this weekend, which I'd never heard of before. The idea of it, though, is pretty cool. I don't know if you've ever seen an ultrasound happen, but the basic concept is that they take a slice image that you can see; sure, it lets you see more than you would without the ultrasound at all, but it also leaves quite a bit to the imagination. Some people can't tell what's going on at all.
But if you take those slices and let a computer reconstruct them into a 3D image, it looks much better. You'll probably be able to tell what you're looking at. Watch this:
