Amazing collection of microscopic pictures from inside of human body provided by Wellcome Images, UK shows various parts of human body up close and personal. Most of the pictures have been color enhanced to help important part stand out and get distinguished from its surrounding. This also adds to more 3D feel of the pictures that have depth thanks to color adjustments. Human body is truly amazing.
Vast maority of pictures has been photographed using SEM – scanning electron microscope which emits high energy beams that scan surfaces and create microscopic images of it as it “scans” across the cells. SEM can send millions of beams across the target area. Those slid along the surface of atoms present and send information that is then processed into a high resolution, 3D image. SEM can create high-res images of any part of human body and magnify it 250,000 times, which means it can create a high resolution image even of atoms as small as 1nm (nano meter).
The history of SEM images reaches back to 1935 when Max Knoll captured first microscopic picture of silicone steel. The SEM technology has since evolved and improved to a level that now it can create a nice, clean 3D image of even the smallest part of human body. Following microscopic pictures will take you on a journey through human body, showing detailed images of neurons in human brain, through plaque on teeth, down to surface of a healthy lung and a lung suffering from cancer, all the way to human egg, sperm and an embryo fertilized by sperm.
