Conception to Birth Visualized~Amazing!

This is a wonderful example of what technology can do when properly utilized. Alexander Tsiaras gave this talk for, a site where you can find many interesting presentations. 

There are no words to describe the miracle of life~but this visual talk given by Mr. Tsiaras gives credence to the phrase, a picture is worth a thousand words!

Alexander Tsiaras is the recipient of numerous awards, including the World Press Award, several Art Director's Awards, and the Webby Award for the best Health site on the Internet. Information on his company is available at Anatomical Travelogue. In 2009 he launched, a revolutionary online health information site based on visual experience derived from real scans. His work has been featured on the covers of over one hundred-twenty magazines~including: LIFE, TIME, New York Times Magazine, Discover, Smithsonian, GEO, and the London Sunday Times Magazine.
There is a series of short, interesting videos featuring Mr. Tsiaras describing his journey from photographer to medical imagery at this LINK. He speaks of his ongoing curiosity, and how his work empowers people to understand the human body, as well as his latest work, which allows a doctor to use a tablet to "practice" the actual surgery he is about to perform~truly amazing!. You can find numerous online articles about his work with medical visualization and his books, which include:
* From Conception to Birth: A Life Unfolds;
* Architecture & Design of Man & Woman: The Marvel of the Human Body Revealed;
* Body Voyage: A Three-Dimensional Tour of a Real Human Body
* The InVision Guide to Lifeblood.

According to his bio, Alexander Tsiaras was thrown out of several schools, and is largely "self-taught"! (OK, so now I really feel like an underachiever) Clearly Alexander Tsiaras is a man with an extraordinary mind, but he also has a built-in curiousity and the desire to use his brain to continuously learn and discover. Do watch this presentation~and be inspired!
