In the news recently was an update from the Visible Human Project, where cadavers are sliced into very thin (300 micron) sections, and each one is digitised so that the full structure of the body can be visualised.
The motivation here is to create a standard digital body, for teaching and reference. The full dataset is handed out only under authorisation, but a number of slices are freely available (e.g., pictured above). Usefully, there is also a low resolution animation of the complete slices available on this page. This was too good an opportunity to pass up, so I downloaded all 700kB and had a look.
