Researcher Xavier Maitre, a medical imaging researcher at the University of Paris-South, and colleagues have developed a "digital mirror" that shows whet your body looks like from the inside.

In order for this process to work, a person needs to undergo a PET scan, X-ray and MRI scan to capture high-resolution images of bones and organs. Thereafter, when the person steps in front of the mirror, Microsoft Kinect's motion-capture camera will help track the movement of different joints.

Graphical processing units are used to display medical animations, which means users can see their body inside out, according to the report published in New Scientist.

Researchers added that future uses of the mirror could include preparation for surgery by doctors.
