Who knew such a science-based profession could produce some amazing works of art? For the past few years, a radiology journal called RadioGraphics has been publishing their covers with amazing images of various body scans. Beyond just black and white, these images often turn simple, often benign tomography, MRI and X-rays into a new level of pop art.
We've included a few of our favorties in this article, but you can see all of the last three years worth of covers at their website. Click here to take you there.
This cover from November of 2009 shows a heart beautifully colored in four different views, harkening to an Andy Warhol print of the 1960's.
This cover from July of 2008 shows a brain colorized in many different views, looking like it would fit right into any soho op art gallery.
This cover from March-April of 2009 shows a human hip and legs in such detail that maybe even past artists like Rembrant or Michelangelo might gasp in awe of the beauty that lurks inside the human structure.
Even a soft, pastel pallet of color can make what some radiologists see as a horrible body situation as the January-February 2007 cover also a tranquil work of art.
