Fraunhofer MEVIS Workshop with Yen Tzu Chang

For her performance Whose Scalpel, Yen Tzu Chang recorded her own heart data with the help of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner. We are going to switch to the live stream of the MRI laboratory, where the researchers will give us detailed insights into the functions of the MRI scanner, and we can immediately ask questions and scan real pieces of fruit. On the computer, we can use the recorded data to recognize their internal structures without cutting the fruit open. Yen Tzu Chang will provide insight into her performance entitled Whose Scalpel and discuss images of her heart taken at the scanner with experts. Finally, we will continue to experiment with medical images of the human body using computers.
