New information out of the University of Pittsburgh reinforces what we have been saying about enhanced imaging techniques: computer analysis will be used to augment imaging technologies to provide far greater clarity than we can achieve presently.

The technique being developed at Pitt uses algorithms that analyze MRI scans to create brain images of neuron strands. The images can be used to find neuronal disconnections, which can in turn be used in diagnosis.

We will be seeing many more techniques being developed that will harness computing power to aid visualization of human anatomy and physiology.
