CT Scan of a mummy in Syracuse
Brief piece about scanning a mummy named Hen - "An Egyptian mummy was taken to a Syracuse hospital by ambulance for a C-T scan.The 2-thousand-year-old mummy, called Hen, usually is on display at the Cazenovia Library. Radiologist E-Mark Levinsohn and Crouse Hospital agreed to provide their services to help the library find out when and how the mummy died." The results of the scan have not yet been analysed. Strangely for a news site, this piece does not appear to be dated, but I can't recall seeing it before, so I am assuming that it is recent.
