Egyptian Child Mummy

Radiologists at Stanford University used a high-resolution computed tomography (CT) scanner to generate 60,000 2D scans of an unopened, intact mummy.

Computers running the latest 3D computer graphics at Silicon Graphics used the scans to create a 3D model of the 2000-year-old mummy and its interior. As the body showed no telltale signs of trauma or long-term disease, researchers believe the child died unexpectedly.
