A few decades ago I saw a video on how they made some "visible human" software where you could slice through various body parts and see a real image.

Turns out they literally froze bodies then used a large milling machine to shave layers off a millimeter at a time, taking pictures as they went.

I worked with CNC machines at the time and on regular old metal cutting machines the coolant tanks would stink like death. Just imagining a chip conveyor full of human hamburger made me throw up a little.
