Digitised Diseases

Digitised Diseases features human bones which have been digitised using 3D laser scanning, CT and radiography. The resource focuses on a wide range of pathological type specimens from archaeological and historical medical collections, specifically examples of chronic diseases which affect the human skeleton. It includes high fidelity photo-realistic digital representations of 3D bones that can be viewed, downloaded and manipulated on computer, tablet or smartphone.

This JISC-funded project is a collaboration between Archaeological Sciences and the Centre for Visual Computing at the University of Bradford and Museum of London Archaeology and the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

Please note that the project is currently in beta and the website is still being developed. See the project blog for further information or follow @digidiseases on Twitter for project news.
