Who would have imagined that the examination of a 33-year-old Chinese woman for thyroid disease would result in the picture shown above? Dr Kai-hung Fung was a co-winner in the photography category for the 2007 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge. The contest is sponsored by the journal Science and the National Science Foundation. The picture is actually a computed tomography (CT) scan image that shows the intricate parts of the human nose.
