I think you are referring to the Visible Human Project. It wasn't MRI, 
though, it was strictly freezy-freezy, slicey-slicey. Camera on top. I 
think Voxelman can render the VH data sets (at least they say it on some 
site of theirs). I heard it rumored the homicidal (he looks it, too, every 
inch) Adam will soon have an equally bad, bad Eve (but in better 
resolution, and technicolor ;) to join him in the virtual Valhal.

Out of curiosity, was your voxel set in DICOM?

I undestand you wholly, I have a xerox of my head (anatomical, and fMRI) as 
well, floating on some optical disk somewhere. Must DAT it, soon. Another 
slice, anyone?
