Human Hip Vessels as seen with BriteVu

Human Hip Vessels as seen with BriteVu

Human hip blood vessels perfused with BriteVu.  This section was taken from a whole body perfusion performed by Dr Bruce Wainman (Ed Program Anatomy, McMaster U).  The femoral artery and its branches have been digitally isolated.  From the left to right the images show a lateral to anterior depiction of the hip.  The coccyx (tailbone) is shown at the far left of each image.  The femoral artery (and its branches) can be best seen at the lower right of each…

Human knee with BriteVu contrast

Human knee with BriteVu contrast

Human knee perfused with BriteVu courtesy of Dr. Bruce Wainman, Education Program in Anatomy, at McMaster University.  As a part of a whole cadaver perfusion, the knee was isolated and image adjusted to show the deeper vessels.  BriteVu Special Projects was used as the contrast agent. CT performed on a GE clinical scanner and 1 mm slices taken. Images such as these are being used to teach anatomy unlike ever before.  The images can be converted to 3D viewing tables…

BriteVu contrast enhanced image of a human cadaver head

BriteVu contrast enhanced image of a human cadaver head

Pictured is a lateral (side) BriteVu contrast enhanced image of a human cadaver head.  The perfusion was completed by Dr Bruce Wainman (Education Program in Anatomy) at McMaster University.  Vessels coursing over and around the skull are seen throughout the image. This type of study allows one to see the blood vessels in 3D and is very helpful for students, teachers, surgeons and others that want to know the location and orientation of the vascular anatomy of the human head….

Contrast enhanced image of a human cadaver head

Above is the first complete detailed contrast enhanced (BriteVu) image of a human cadaver head.  The perfusion was completed by Dr Bruce Wainman (Education Program in Anatomy) at McMaster University.  The head was (digitally) cut down the middle (sagittal section) to show the blood supply inside the brain, nasal passages, spine and even the tongue.  This type of study allows one to see the blood vessels in 3D and is very helpful for students, teachers, surgeons and others that want…
