Cutting edge imaging

Just finished doing the acceptance testing of our new 64 slice CT scanner. This thing will generate a whole bucketload of images without even thinking about it. After two days of playing around, testing and scanning various phantoms, I ended up with a little over 3700 images to send to our PACS. Ended up with some very impressive looking reconstructed images showing a lot more detail in the reformatted coronal and sagittal planes than I expected. It's a cool machine, but radiologists are going to need new visualization tools to handle all the images these things can spit out.

On another note, the article about blogging I was interviewed for a couple of weeks ago was published today in The State newspaper. It's a short little fluffy piece with quotes and stuff from a few other webloggers (including me).
