Presents the results of an investigation into the feasibility of producing models of human anatomy by linking MRI and stereolithography. Begins by describing the requirements for developing a link between the two technologies together with the major problems that this involves. Describes the processes undertaken to enable the creation of a model of a human brain. The model showed excellent anatomical details and demonstrated that the technique of linking MRI and stereolithography is entirely feasible. However, the preparatory work required prior to building the model showed that there are many difficulties associated with transferring and processing the imaging data. Recommendations are made as to how this technique needs to evolve.
