Leonardo da Vinci was right all along, new medical scans show

Posted by

Daily Telegraph: He has long been praised as one of the finest artists of the Renaissance, working far ahead of his time and producing some of the world’s most recognisable works.

But Leonardo da Vinci has finally received the credit he deserves for his “startling” medical accuracy hundreds of years in advance of his peers, as scientists match his anatomical drawings with modern day MRI scans.

The project, which will be unveiled at the Edinburgh International Festival in August, compares the work directly for the very first time, unveiling the minute details recorded by the artist.

In a series of 30 pictures, the Royal Collection Trust will show da Vinci’s distinctive anatomical drawingsalongside a newly-taken MRI or CT scan.

The comparison is intended to show just how accurate da Vinci was, despite his limited technology and lack of contemporary medical knowledge.

One Response to Leonardo da Vinci was right all along, new medical scans show

    My interest in Leonado de Vinci is of a different nature. The phenomenon of “revelation” in one of its forms shifted from the Muslim World and was shifted to the secular scientist in the 15th century. Beyond that point it appears that the flood gates opened up and the “unknown” was made “known” to a mindset which was NOT bigoted. In the Islamic terminology “Khilafat” on the Earth was shifted and bestowed to the “secular” mindset, which continued until the advent of the Promised Masiha. It is at that point that the old sciences got an impetus and humankind was able to get off the ground, and succeeded to undertake space travels.
