Natural interactions for medical image analysis

Interaction-Design Master Thesis

Do you know any XRay-like scans in Science Fiction movies?

with 2 comments

I have all these pictures of fancy body scans in my head, but can’t remember in which movies I saw them. Can you think of any examples of (medical) body scans in movies, books or computer games?

I am hoping to find some other inspiration than serious medical topics…. to open up my mind a bit.

Here are some examples I’ve found so far (here is the fun part of design research: watching movies!)

Total Recall: airport security scan that automatically detects weapons and colors them red.

following you also find examples from The Island, Star Trek and the 5th Element…

The Island: don’t know how this is used, need to rewatch the movie.

Start Trek: its possibly one of the greatest resources for this topic. I just don’t know where to start watching… there is too much Star Trek. Any Start Trek Geek working in the medical field out there?

The 5th Element: not exactly a scan, but this machine is rebuilding a body. Very cool animation of the human anatomy.

  1. Wow, very cool!
    I came across this while searching for radiology. I work in the industry so it is neat to see Hollywood’s take on it.
