How did Scan of the Month start?

Curiosity and an endless thirst for knowledge with the right tools can lead you to interesting and weird places.

As engineers, designers, manufacturers, and restless people, we used a Lumafield CT scanner to scan a loaf of bread. That one scan has opened an entire world of exploration and a deeper understanding of the inner workings of life around us.

It's fascinating and detailed, the best of the web, a worthy successor to the thick glossy book this might once have been.
