Brains on film

CD from radiology people + Osirix software (thanks Jed for the tip!) + GraphicConverter = animgifs of my brain. THROBBING. FULL OF RADIOACTIVE GOOP.

The rest are in http://www.masculinehygiene.com/d/m/gifsbrain/ for anyone who wants to make an industrial music video or just look at throbbing brains.

  1. These are excellent. In fact, I would like to make a music video with them, but I cannot convert animated GIFs to video format. Would you be willing to post a ZIP or RAR of the image files?

  2. Hi,
    My friend linked me to this post of yours. Your brain looks nice and healthy—at least from what I can see. I have a bunch of MRIs in which my brain looks like Swiss Cheese (I have Multiple Sclerosis). How did you do this (using the software you’ve listed above)? It’s damn cool…

    1. I am sorry to hear you have MS. I didn’t know it was that easy to see on an MRI.
      I have a mac, so I used a free program called Osirix to grab the images off the hospital’s CD into a format I could read. It let me export the images as .mov movie files, and I then used GraphicConverter to turn those into animated GIFs.
      Thanks for the brain compliment!

      1. It’s ok…shit happens (hahaha). Oh yeah: MS pops right out on MRIs. See?:

        Those are just two of the images from one of my scans. I have 5+ lesions (those white spots) like that in mine brain, and some people have a lot more.
        Alas…I don’t have a Mac.
        Do they know what’s wrong with you yet? I gather that they suspect it’s neurological—otherwise they wouldn’t be scanning your brain. May I ask what symptoms you’ve been experiencing?
        Cheers,
        V.
