pen-um-bra: a space of partial illumination (as in an eclipse) between the perfect shadow on all sides and the full light
In the world of radiology, digital is now king. This has made it possible, as well as easier for an art form, penumbra art, to evolve. Creating the imagery utilizes medical images such as computed tomography (CT scans), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI scans), plain X-rays as well as photography. Having a substantial knowledge of the body's intricate form and function, a radiologist has the unique opportunity to view humanity from a different perspective. The human body, as viewed with modern imaging technology, contains many beautiful and intricate structures that allow a vast universe of artistic possibilities.
