Using revolutionary medical imaging technology, researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology are providing a better understanding of the human body and its many secrets.
Led by Richard Doolittle, RIT’s director of the department of medical sciences, and Paul Craig, professor of chemistry, a team of students has created never-before-seen virtual images of the pancreas, detailed pictures of the human skull and DNA-level images of protein molecules. Their findings were presented in a virtual tour entitled “3D Visualization in Science, from molecules to cells to organs.”
“We are now able to create virtual images of the human body at the microscopic level,” Doolittle notes. “These images have never been produced before and will help us better understand human development while also having tremendous implications for the diagnosis and treatment of numerous diseases.”
