 Radiologist Turns Scans Of The Body Into Masterpieces!
In a unique form of art, a radiologist in Hong Kong presents scanned images of various parts of human body as pictures in galleries.

Kai-hung Fung uses 3D computed tomography to picture the many organs of his patients and claims that he makes it look as real as possible by avoiding using any effects.

"The pictures I create are generated directly from the medical 3D workstation, representing what I see on it. I do not use software such as Adobe Photoshop to further change the image," the Telegraph quoted him as saying.

He added: "My aim is to preserve the direct relationship between the data and the artwork.

"It is a true integration of art, science and technology and can be studied both scientifically and enjoyed as a visual art.

"The imagery is packed with information. Each line or point represents specific anatomical structures in the body in normal or diseased state. It creates an unusual perspective."

Fung first presented his work at Pamela Youde Nethersole Easter Hospital after which it made it to galleries across the world.
