Real-Time MRI Music Video (實時MRI音樂MV)

31 01 2013

Art + Music + Medicine + Technology  = one stunning music video!

Sivu, a UK based musician, laid in an MRI scanner while repeatedly singing his song “Better Man Than He” for 2-3 hours. The real-time MRI footage shows the sagittal section of Sivu’s head as his mouth and tongue move to each word. The video also shows the coronal passage and 3D volume rendering of his head.

Real-time MRI, a relatively new technique, allows the live capture of images of objects in motion and is being employed to study organs such as the heart, joint kinetics and complicated coordinated movements employed during speaking, swallowing and singing as seen here.

Sivu – Better Man Than He. from Adam Powell on Vimeo.

The music video was created by director Adam Powell with the help of doctors Marc E. Miquel and Andrew David Scott at Barts Hospital London.
