Caption: Fossil microtomography scanning. Researchers using microtomography techniques to study the fossil skull of a condylarth, an extinct prehistoric mammal (65-23 million years ago). This scanning technique uses high-resolution X-ray scanning (computed tomography) to record microscopic internal structure. In the background, the specimen is being placed in the scanning position, while the scanner controls and screen are in the foreground. This scanner is from the French imaging company Viscom. Photographed in 2010, at the French National Museum of Natural History (MNHN), Paris, France.
