Quite possibly the coolest thing I’ve ever seen

Okay, for all you hard-core neuro-nerds out there, here’s something that’s quite likely to utterly consume your attention for hours — nee, days, even weeks and months — to come.

It’s RMR Systems, Ltd. 3DView Volume Rendering software, and it is a free download that you can install on your PC, and then look at MRI’s in three dimensions.

I mean, this stuff is so incredibly cool, it just boggles the mind. Here are images from the pre-loaded imaging that comes with it, which are “sliced and diced” on different planes. You can zoom in, cut in from all sides, do cross-sections, and other really cool stuff that I can’t even show here, because they really require a YouTube video to have the full effect. I may just make one of them… when I carve out the time from my crazy schedule.

Note: these are not pictures of me. My MRI images are for my eyes only… oh, and my doctors’ eyes.

Starting view from the Front

Starting view from the Side

Starting view from the Top

“Cut” view from the Top

“Cut” view from the Top and Side

“Cut” view from the Back and Side

“Cut” view from the Front, Top and Side

It really is amazing. Again,RMR Systems, Ltd. 3DView Volume Rendering software, is a free download that you can install on your PC, and then look at MRI’s in three dimensions. If you’ve had an MRI done and you want to see your brain in 3D, you must get a copy of this and view your slices with it.

Like some weirdo geeky Narcissus, I’ve been obsessed with viewing my own brain.

And for good reason.

OMG

I am a long-term multiple (mild) Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI or TBI) survivor who experienced assaults, falls, car accidents, sports-related injuries in the 1960s, '70s, '80s, and '90s. My last mild TBI was in 2004, but it was definitely the worst of the lot. I never received medical treatment for my injuries, some of which were sports injuries (and you have to get back in the game!), but I have been living very successfully with cognitive/behavioral (social, emotional, functional) symptoms and complications since I was a young kid. I’ve done it so well, in fact, that virtually nobody knows that I sustained those injuries… and the folks who do know, haven’t fully realized just how it’s impacted my life. It has impacted my life, however. In serious and debilitating ways. I’m coming out from behind the shields I’ve put up, in hopes of successfully addressing my own (invisible) challenges and helping others to see that sustaining a TBI is not the end of the world, and they can, in fact, live happy, fulfilled, productive lives in spite of it all.
