It seems that ultrasound imaging
has progressed recently. There was
an article in the press a few weeks
back about someone who produced a
pretty good physical model from one
of these scans, although he seems
to have mixed in some MRI data as
well. I doubt that there's anything
specifically designed to do this
(yet) but probably MIMICS would get
you most of the way there. But
exactly how to go about processing
it is going to be the challenging

Here's the article:
