Figure 1-2: Planes of the body: Frontal, sagittal, and transverse. Taking pictures of your insides For anatomists and physiologists from Aristotle to Charles Darwin, the images they had were the sketches they made for themselves. Some of them were pretty good at it: Darwin’s sketches of beaks of the finches of the Galapagos Islands were both beautiful and scientifically valuable. ” In 1895, Roentgen recorded the first image of the internal parts of a living human: an X-ray image of his wife’s hand.
Refinements and enhancements of X-ray techniques were developed all through the 20th century, with extensive use and major advances during World War II. The X-ray is still a widely used method for medical diagnosis screening for signs of disease, usually tumors. In the 1970s, computer technology took off, taking medical imaging technology with it. Digital imaging techniques began to be applied to convert multiple flat-slice images into one three-dimensional image. The first technology of this sort was called computed axial tomography (commonly called a CAT or CT scan), in which multiple X-ray images are combined into Chapter 1: Anatomy and Physiology: The Big Picture cross-sectional pictures of structures inside the body.
