Stanford radiologists are hard at work right now scanning a 2,600-year-old Egyptian mummy.
We'll have a full set of videos, articles and photos on this mummy madness soon, but here's what's happened so far today:
The mummy arrives at the Axiom lab at the School of Medicine campus. He's wrapped in soft white material to prevent damage.
Here three de Young employees (Alisa Eagleston, assistant conservator, Jocelyn Chan, intern, and Elizabeth Cornu, head objects conservator) remove a special plastic cover meant to protect handlers from ancient dust and germs.
Unwrapping the mummy as Stanford biophysicist Rebecca Fahrig looks on.
Ready for scanning!
