Video interview with Dr. Claire Walsh on the Human Organ Atlas
We interviewed Dr. Claire Walsh, Senior Research Fellow at the University College London and the ESRF, and part of the team that developed the Human Organ Atlas.
The Human Organ Atlas is an online database of human organs scanned with a new technology developed at ESRF, called HiP-CT, Hierarchical Phase-Contrast Tomography, which allows to scan a whole intact human organ at 20 micrometer per voxel, and zoom in to any area of interest down to one micrometer per voxel without physically cutting the organ up. The data, images and analysis, are then made available online into a free open access database. This data is open for anybody anywhere in the world to download, to interact with. The portal frontend is based on the PaNOSC search portal and API.
