MOC: Lego tomography
Posted 12 March 2010 - 07:36 PM
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
The real procedure of recieving data about inner structure of humans's body
This is a real tomogram
And how about legocity hospital? Let's see…
The data was obtain…
Legomedical technology… To be continued…

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

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 !
Like to see if you'll come up with some other medical equipment - great work 'Kubik-Rubik' and keep on bricking !

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

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.
