My favourite scan so far

I popped down to the lab today to see Andy H, and was amazed by his latest scan. It's of two hand phalanges. They have fused at an angle, showing the claw hand deformity; the joint is also subluxed (partially dislocated). He kindly gave me a couple of quick screen shots, so you can see what it looks like - this will be sent off to Chris W and the texturing team next week.

I've seen so many photographs of these bones, but they've never shown the angle of fusion so well. I can't wait to see how they look when they have been cleaned up and textured!
