Scott Bakula is one of my favorite actors, mostly because of the parts he's played. He's taken a Quantum Leap back in time, and gone years into the future as the first captain of the Enterprise.
But another Bakula, Robert Bakula, is an elderly patient who's taking a quantum leap of his own. A guy who was born in the last century is being treated with technology that seems transported from the future.
As the following video shows, astounding CT (computerized tomography) scan technology makes possible to scan the human body quickly, constructing Star Trek-like, rotatable, 3D images of the inner workings of a living patient's body, complete with clear pictures of any disease indicators that may be present. Check it out: this is not your father's CT scan.
It's almost not to be believed that this isn't part of a special effects science fiction movie. It's science fact. In fact, it's been around for at least five years now, and is present in at least 150 hospitals around the US. Look for one near you! In the meantime, watch this fascinating YouTube video.
