What is BodyViz?

BodyViz is an innovative 3-D digital resource that promotes a unique immersion experience with human anatomy.  BodyViz takes the 2-D slices of CT and MRI scans from real patients then stacks and formulates them into 3-D renderings of the human body.  These images can then be manipulated and tailored to the user's personal goals.
