Eugène-Louis Doyen was a revolutionary (if flamboyant and controversy-loving) Parisian surgeon who lived between 1859 and 1919.
Long before the Visible Human Project created its 1,871 “slices” of Joseph Paul Jernigan at 1 mm intervals, and created over 65 gigs of anatomical data (and later created 40 gigs of data with a female cadaver), Doyen presented a new way of visualizing the cadaver: longitudinal and horizontal sections, showing exactly how the human anatomy goes together in each area, without the context of seeing the full organs or bones.
Though the full usefulness of these unorthodox sections wasn’t truly appreciated until the advent of tomography in the early 1970s, they were noted to be helpful to early radiologists, and especially to the burgeoning fields of criminal forensics and forensic archaeology.

Been tinkering with the idea of a Monster Hunter monster version of Charizard. Maybe I’ll flesh this idea out more someday. You should pretend this this is like leaked concept art for Pokemonster Hunter if you show it to someone.
Not a human baby, but I figured you guys would like this. Just got this preserved deformed pig today, pretty sure it had a pretty severe case of otocephaly.
