You might be able to get cross section data of a real chest from Dr. David
Alciatore ( of Colorado State University.
He's here in Fort Collins. Dave and others are reconstructing a human thorax
from cross section data taken from a frozen cadaver. They froze a body in a
gel and then cut 1 mm slices (as I recall), digitally photographing each slice
as they go. Although it's not CT or MRI data, it might be better. Fascinating
work, huh!
