    1. There are a few dot-sized floating artifacts, but other than that what you see is what you get… I basically shattered the whole top of my tibia and tibial plateau.

  1. _ouch_

    How did you acquire these VRs? Thats super cool! Were they close to just replacing that damn whole thing with a titanium piece? Why isn’t there some kind of nanobot glue that fuses the shards together? Screws seems like civil war surgeon tech. Glad you’re actually walking again, amazing.

    1. I actually made the Quicktime VR files using a package called OsiriX, which coincidentally won a Apple Design Award at WWDC 2005 about two days after I recieved the CD-ROM containing all of my x-ray data from the radiology department at St. Elizabeth’s….

      This CD-R contained not only my traditional xrays, but also the slices from my CT scan. OsiriX can take those slices and process them in various ways, including making a 3D Surface Rendering from the data, which is what I did… The 3D Surface Rendering mode can export to QT and QTVR as well as Renderman, VRML, Inventor, Wavefront, and STL.

      It has several other modes of rendering the data… It is truly an amazingly powerful piece of software…

    2. I probably would have recovered from a knee replacement faster than my pins and plates surgery, but the replacement knees currently deteriorate and need to be replaced after about 15 years, which at my age is fairly significant…
