Bony GIF's

Just in time for Halloween, here are some motion GIF's demonstrating function of various joints.

As reported in the Daily Mail,

They were created by San Francisco-based designer Cameron Drake for his client Weiss Orthopedics.

Mr Drake began by uploading the raw footage to a video editor and trimming the clips so they revealed the precise motions made by the joints.

He then removed the individual patient details using Photoshop.

Once the clips were selected, Mr Drake duplicated the frames so they played on a loop.

'This was an excitement in and of itself as there is not much like it on the web and gave me an opportunity to do something cool,' he wrote on his website.
At birth, babies are born with 350 bones which gradually fuse together to complete the adult skeleton of 260. 
We in the imaging business tend to get a little jaded, but when you stop to think about it, we look inside of people, noninvasively, dozens and hundreds of times per day. It really is amazing.
