Thank You Intermountain Medical Imaging

Thank you Intermountain Medical Imaging for scanning our “mock brain” with your EHP CT scanner. 

The 3D images will be used in our final technical report submitted to the Microgravity University program.

The “Mock Brain” is made of Ballistics Gel and is adhered to a clear poly-carbonate plate. It is permanently sealed inside of a 3D printed part made of a Polyactic Acid Filament. The base plate is 20x24cm and the “skull” stands about 13cm tall.
