    TimDrew- Am I the only person who looks at your link and thought “man high heels ARE evil.” And for the record, I’m surprised that anybody around here thought the xrays in the original WEREN’T photoshopped.

    Meh, I’m holding out for the TSA edition.

    AWW YEAH BABY SHOW ME YOUR COCCYX

    It does make sense for these pictures to be originals: Eizo wants to advertise their x-ray imaging capabilities, and probably had a studio set up for the pictures. I would like to see the original calendar, where they probably put in fine print what Eizo devices and software were used to achieve these images.

    I want to buy one…please to tell me how!

    For some reason when I see the xray I’ll I think about is the “jiggly butt”…

    The posters who are saying CG are correct. If you look at the credits, there is one for “illustrator/GCI,” but none for any kind of X-ray technologist.

    But how I wish this was real….

    Is it just me, or is that particular pic (above) so hawt?

    Wonderful! I wonder if it’s actually CG, or perhaps some kind of composite.

  12. Amplifier says:

    I think you’ll find it’s a 3D render (you can tell by the pixels)

    Guys, this is obviously CG – you can’t get depth that is all in focus with a planar imaging modality like X-rays. That’s why doctors order AP (anterior to posterior) or PA (posterior to anterior) chest x-rays – the farther an object is from the X-ray detector, the more the waves are diffused out. Objects closest to the detector remain sharp.

    Who cares about the models, Ralph Lauren’s new shoe collection is fabulous.

    As a registered medical Radiologic Technologist I am obviously impressed with the artistic aspect of these images!
    As a Radiological Control Technician I am unimpressed with the amount of radiation the subject may have been exposed to. It was probably less than what you and I see from natural background radiation annually.
    That said… I also wish had copy of the calendar.

  17. jeffbell says:

    I really doubt that anybody was irradiated just for this calendar. It’s totally shopped.

    For example, figure 2010(8) has dark nipples. If anything, they would show up as white. Radiologists sometimes even put little markers so that nipples are not mistaken for tumors.

    For example http://nexradiology.blogspot.com/2009/10/nipple-markers.html

    Not only do I say this is CGI (and I’m glad to hear there’s a credit for the illustrator) but I think that’s Victoria 4, the Victoria 4 Skeleton, the pwEffect surface shaders, all rendered using DAZ Studio (all from DAZ3D.com).

    Which is totally awesome, nice to see someone from the community making BoingBoing news :D

    First thing I thought of was the sexy, mostly invisible female ghoul that Fafhrd falls for in The Swords of Lankhmar, by Fritz Leiber (you could only see her skeleton of the glistening of her invisible skin in the fireflight). I had to look up her name, it was Kreeshkra. Man those were good stories.

  20. robulus says:

    I think it’s pretty obvious they’ve used photographic images as a reference, and then posed 3D models to fit.

    But it’s probably better in light of that. Very nice work and cleverly done.

  21. querent says:

    very hot. so much more intimate than simple nudity. you are quite lovely lady.

  22. eagleapex says:

    Any clue why the lungs would be darker than other parts? It’s like they are absorbing the Xrays.

    • jackie31337 says:

      When lungs are full of air, they are nearly invisible on x-rays. When lungs show up opaque on a x-ray, you know there’s something other than air in them. For example, that’s how they diagnose pneumonia from a chest x-ray (I’ve had quite a few chest x-rays, and cases of pneumonia).

    I want a doctor!
    To take your picture!
    So I can look at you from inside as well

    The logical outcome of the anorexic model craze.

    Kreeshkra wants to turn us mud-men to sweet crystal flesh. Mmmm.

    Is a real, live woman with flesh, a face, and eyes that look into yours too much for you guys spending the night in front of your laptops? A skeleton wearing heels, no less. Do you feel superior to guys with inflatable girl friends? Be brave. Take a chance. Go out and meet a nice girl. Don’t go there, into x-ray porn. At least consider how much radiation a person is taking for your viewing pleasure. Seriously.

    That’s a triple x-ray, that is.

    If I was going to buy a calender, I think this might be it.

  32. PushTheOtherButton says:

    I say this is a government plot to encourage cultural acceptance of full-body scanners at airports…

  33. theLadyfingers says:

    Clearly CG, unless she’s lying on a mat of liquid hydrogen for the X-rays to pass through.

  34. Anonymous says:

    This is all CG. Xrays cannot get that depth of field, not to mention, there aren’t any traces of soft tissue that normally shows up on an x-ray. Any small amount of metal on her shoe should have created artifacts on a real xray.

    The only way one could get ‘xray’ images in those poses is a CT scan… and since human scanners aren’t going to fit those poses in, they’d have had to use a large animal scanner. “Hey, this porn lady goes in before the elephant!”

    The images are too free of noise and artifacts to be from a CT scan. Some of the bones are too perfect and didactic to be from a real person. Human bodies are full of quirks that the medical atlases don’t show. The skeleton is from a stock 3D medical model folks, no radiation was involved in making of these images(minus some xrays they creators might have used as references, taken for diagnostic reasons and had privacy releases to be used for referencing)

    Lungs are darker on xrays because the xray can pass through air(not dense) while it can’t pass as easily through denser tissue. So no, lungs are not absorbing the radiation.

    You gotta wonder how much radiation that girl has just taken…

    That’s crazy, getting a full body x-ray’s worth of radiation just for a calendar. Or rather, 12 full-body x-ray’s worth of radiation, if they used the same model. But strangely, the result is actually pretty hot…

      I doubt they’d do that, but even if they did, I don’t think it would be that dangerous. The regulations on these sorts of things are generously on the side of safety. (Note: I’m not really qualified to talk about xrays, but I was trained to handle radioactive materials at a DOE facility — various types of xray doses were taught to contextualize our exposure at the facility.)

        Quack chiropractors have been radiating people for years. I just hope this was a digital setup, which uses far less radiation.

        Real medical professionals are really uncomfortable with radiating gonads unless absolutely necessary. For all we know, this could be some advanced photoshop.

  42. CG says:

    I kinda liked the relation of the skeleton to the form. I think this would be very useful as an art reference.

    That said, I hope it wasn’t the same model getting all those X-Rays…
