Nasal sinus visualization winner

The winners of the 2007 Science/NSF-sponsored Visualization Challenge are pictured in this week's Science.

Anthro-readers may not have looked at this story, but one of the first place winners is a colorful CT visualization of the nasal sinuses.

Human anatomy it may be, but the airways that riddle the space behind our noses take on an alien aspect in this unearthly rendering created by Kai-hung Fung, a radiologist at the Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital in Hong Kong.

It's pretty cool, if you're into bones.
