Lego tomography

May be you know the Lego CT on Flickr…
But today I want to present for you my lego tomography

This is classical doctors near a classical CT

Tomography is imaging by sections or sectioning, through the use of wave of energy.
This is a tomograph – the device which used in tomography tomograph

:thumbup: This is taking the LEGO hospital into the 21st century in a heartbeat.

Looking good. But where is the tomograph of the minifig patient? That would be fun to see.  :laugh:

Nice work!  Just needs a control room:  the operators wouldn't stay in the room while the CT scanner is on - too much exposure to X rays.

Not many of the patients going through the CT scanner where I work have auch a big smile on their faces.  :wink:

G'day 'Kubik-Rubik' nice scanner ! :sweet:
But it does not really look like the picture of real one, but it does look like if it's for a field hospital in a war or disaster zone - smaller than a real large hospital one but just right to be transported to a danger zone.
Now you might have got me thinking about making one too - hmm, a blood test and xray/scan medical office - there are a few of those around !
Oh, by the way I love the x-ray of the minifig, gee heaps of radiation even the scan got in to the picture as well ! :laugh:
Like to see if you'll come up with some other medical equipment - great work 'Kubik-Rubik' and keep on bricking ! :sweet:

Very clever KR.  It's always nice to see medical-related creations, not often built by LEGO fans.  I think we need a LEGO Modular Hospital for placement of this and other well-needed medical equipment.  What set is the plain white torso from?  It worked well for the Rad Tech/assistant.

Front-paged! :thumbup:

Who needs a tomogram, when there is body scanning (without dangerous rays)? :grin:

Joking aside, very cleverly done, Kubik-Rubik! :thumbup:
I love the realistic story you have told with your photos.

Tomography is imaging by sections or sectioning, through the use of wave of energy.
Addition to that: Plain "tomography" is just a technical term for an image "cutted through" the body (in contrast to an X-ray photo, which is always a projection of all super-imposed structures).
The most common use of tomographies is
a) conventional X-ray tomography
b) CT (computer tomography, to say it simplified: a lot of X-rays tomographies calculated in one bigger picture)
c) MRI (magnet resonance imaging, a complete different story, without any X-rays, made by the spin of atomic nuclei (you posted an example for that))
EDIT: I forgot
d) PET (positron emission tomography, even more complicated than all the three before :laugh:)

I love it!
I'm a radiologist, and have toyed with the idea of doing something similar.  I especially like the way a stretcher fits through the bore.  It may not be the way we humans go through, but it works super well in LEGO, and solves the difficult problem of building a moving table onto the unit itself.
Well done!
