CT Scans as Art

Is it possible to blend radiology and art? Yes, according to Dr. Satre Stuelke. Stuelke, a physician and an artist, created a radiology art project by performing Computed Tomography (CT) scans on various everyday objects such as children's toys, a bag of chips, a slice of pizza, a cell phone, a razor... The results are a colorful and fascinating collection of artwork that has been featured in many locations ranging from private pediatric offices to the National Institutes of Health!

Dr. Stuelke has a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Art Institute of Chicago, and he created his radiology art project when he was a medical student at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York. His artwork may be viewed at www.radiologyart.com.  (The photo above is a CT scan of a children's toy.)
