Dissection of a human heart - showing the chambers
Cardiac MRI scan - heart beat in real time HD (by mushin111)
A human heart stripped of muscle, fat and connective tissues. Left behind, the complexity of the innumerable blood vessels that keep our hearts beating is something to behold.
Soon you will be able to grow your own heart, with your own stem cells.

"This video shows a rabbit heart that has been kept beating outside of the body in a nutrient and oxygen-rich solution. The new cardiac device — a thin, stretchable membrane imprinted with a spider-web-like network of sensors and electrodes — is custom-designed to fit over the heart and contract and expand with it as it beats."
Happy Valentine’s Day! This image of a heart was sequenced by a Revolution* CT scanner, which can take a complete 3-D scan of a heart in one beat.
