Caption: Scanning human fossil bones. Hospital doctor using a medical scanner to scan human fossil bones from the Musee de l'Homme (Museum of Man), Paris, France. This museum is one of the departments of the French National Museum of Natural History (MNHN). Scans such as this are carried out to examine the internal and detailed anatomy of the fossils, and to help construct detailed 3D models. Two fossil thigh bones (femurs) are in the scanner (background). Other fossil bones (such as bone fragments and vertebrae and finger and toe bones) are seen in their carrying cases. Photographed in Paris, in 2010.
