At the 73rd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, we showed the first ever 3D reconstruction of the complete brain of a living human being from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as poster and video. Here are two short sequences from the video.
The flattening of the gyri in the right hemisphere due to a tumor and an edema is clearly visible.
