Doctors ‘Unwrap’ a 3,000-Year-Old Mummy
Doctors use CT scans to create detailed 3-D images of their patients to diagnosis cancer, tumors, and broken bones. A team of radiologists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis paired with art curators to examine the lives of three Egyptian mummies, including a 3,000-year-old mummy named Henut-Wedjebu. Radiologist Sanjeev Bhalla shares what the scans have revealed so far about the life, and death, of these mummies. See more mummy scans here.
