Résumé

Pascal Desbarats, computer scientist at the Bordeaux computer research laboratory (LABRI), explains the principle of 3D imaging.
The emergence of a new discipline, paleopathology, led him to work with Hélène Coqueugniot, anthropologist at PACEA.
Paleopathology is a branch of paleontology specialized in the study of ancient diseases. 3D imaging allows the reconstruction of an entire bone from human remains or a fossil fragment.

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
