A CT Scan is an x-ray that looks at a slice through an object; it gives us a more detailed look inside an object than a regular x-ray.
Early one winter morning in 1995 the Michael C. Carlos Museum mummy had an appointment for a CT Scan. Museum staff prepared the mummy so that it wouldn't be damaged when it traveled outside the Museum. In the photo above, on the left, they are loading it into a van to take it to Emory University Hospital.
Then, on the right, a CT Scan technician placed the mummy inside the machine and numerous images were made.
Here the monitor connected to the machine shows one of the images. They were printed as photographs for the Carlos Museum to keep and analyze. These are the images that you see on this web site.
