NEURODOME II: Liftoff!

March 25, 2013 — Leave a comment

For the first part of this series and to learn a bit more about 3D reconstruction of computed tomography (CT) slices, check out NEURODOME I: Introduction and CT Reconstruction. Our Kickstarter is now LIVE!

“As I stand out here in the wonders of the unknown at Hadley, I sort of realize there’s a fundamental truth to our nature. Man must explore. And this is exploration at its greatest.” – Cdr. David Scott, Apollo 15

It is official. Our Kickstarter for NEURODOME has launched. I have already described a bit about my role in the project and described CT reconstruction. Future posts will delve into fMRI imaging and reconstruction, along with additional imaging modalities and perhaps a taste of medical imaging in space. You might be surprised at the number of challenges astronauts had to take while aboard rockets, shuttles, and the ISS. All of this will be part of the NEURODOME series.

With our launch, we hope to raise enough funds to develop a planetarium show that illustrates our desire to explore. To do so, real data will be used in the fly-throughs. Our first video, The Journey Inward, provides a basic preview of what you might expect.

I will continue to post about this project but, for now, read about NEURODOME on our website and, if you can, help fuel our mission!
