Body Voyage: A 3D Tour of a Real Human Body by Alexander Tsiaras

Body Voyage: A 3D Tour Of A Real Human Body By Alexander Tsiaras

Along with being an artist and journalist, Tsiaras taught himself mathematics and physics and developed his own lenses, including one for a microscope that was used to photograph the first images of human eggs in an in vitro fertilization program. Another lens was used for an endoscope that can photograph the fetus from outside the amniotic sack. The images resulting from this became cover stories for LIFE Magazine. In 1989 Mr. Tsiaras realized the potential of computer-generated imaging and learned UNIX, then C and C++ to write his own programs, transferring his knowledge of light moving through physical space to light moving through tissue in virtual space. He was offered an adjunct professorship at both Brown and Yale University Medical schools. Working with Yale, he received funding from NASA to write algorithms for virtual surgery, so that astronauts could be operated on in robotics pods during deep space flights.
Tsiaras has lectured and keynoted many conferences including the National Library of Medicine (NLM/NIH) Scientific Visualization Conference, TED, TEDMED, INK Conference (in association with TED), the Google Health Conference “ThinkHealth,” and Medicine Meets Virtual Reality (MMVR). He has lectured with Stephen Hawking at the MIT Media Lab.
Mr. Tsiaras’ latest works are, Conception to Birth and TheVisualMD Wellness Program, A Scientific Approach to Losing Weight, Preventing Illness and Reversing Chronic Diseases eBooks. He has recently built an advanced Personal Health Record, titled “MyWellnessStory” that will empower people to plan, optimize and measure their pathways to health and a lifetime of well-being.
