The brutal reality as seen by 3D Radiological Imaging

Technology is changing the way we are able to visualize everything.  This 3D imaging study shows a picture that makes more sense to us than would a simple xray.

In this case, a worker was killed on the job when he was installing a defective device.  The electrical system in the piece of equipment had been negligently manufactured.  When he started to install it, the device shorted  and launched like a rocket into his face.  He survived the impact but died in the hospital about a month later.

So far I'm most underwhelmed by typing on this thing.  ILife to type fast and as you can see do not have the technique down yet.  Actually it's getting better but still is too slow andtoo many mistakes.
