Paper Abstract

The Visible Korean Human dataset is currently being made. The performance period for the experiment is March 2000- August 2005. The complete MR and CT images of the Korean cadaver are acquired. The cadaver is serially sectioned (interval: 0.2 mm) and inputted into the personal computer to make anatomical images (pixel size: 0.2 mm) without missing images. Anatomical structures in the anatomical images are segmented. The Visible Korean Human dataset is expected to be more beneficial than the Visible Human Project dataset in many ways. First, the Korean images will be more helpful in diagnosing and treating patients belonging to the Oriental race. Second, the complete MR and CT images will be more helpful in studying MR and CT images. Third, the anatomical images without missing images will be more beneficial by making complete 3D images. Fourth, the anatomical images with thin interval (0.2 mm) and small pixel size (0.2 mm) will show small anatomical structures. Fifth, the additional segmented images will make 3D images and virtual dissection software easily.
