CT images of crocodile mummies scanned at Stanford


Here by popular demand are two very preliminary renderings of one of the Greco-Roman crocodile mummies scanned last week at Stanford. These images were generated from the clinical CT scanner data obtained at the Stanford Medical Imaging Center.

While scanning this particular mummy, the team noticed that the the crocodile had a fish hook in its abdomen. They are working on a high-resolution reconstruction of the fish hook, but those renderings aren't available yet.


The crocodile mummies, which belong to the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology, and the CT images will be on exhibit at the museum beginning April 23. These renderings were produced using Anatomage, by eHuman Inc.
