|CAT scanning, or why these days I glow in the dark

A couple of weeks back I had a CAT scan done of my head for the benefit of the surgeon whom we'll be visiting in Melbourne at the end of next week. Being me, I demanded the data on CD.
I should note that endearing one's self to chief radiologists is quite simply - all you have to do is stop dead when you walk into the room, gaze admiringly for a few seconds, and then turn to them and say "I've been waiting all my life to be fed through a giant donut-shaped machine."
Anyway, it was all lots of fun (except for dealing with said surgeon's administrative staff in Melbourne who appear to be taking it as a mission to project a supercilious and unhelpful image of the clinic), and now that we have a working computer with a CD drive again, I have the data.
The actual CAT slices need some massaging with a script, but the 3D reconstructions are plain images. Which leads to me the important question for the viewing audience - which of these should I use as an LJ usericon?
As always, click to enlarge.
