Caption

Mummified snakes, micro-CT scan. This image shows the mummified remains of a number of snakes preserved by ancient Egyptians. Ancient Egyptians mummified numerous animals which were either buried along with dead people or were left in temples as offerings. This image was acquired using X-ray micro-Computed Tomography (also known as micro-CT). A micro-CT scanner projects a beam of X-rays through the sample onto a detector panel. Images are collected over a 360° rotation and these are then reconstructed to form a virtual 3D model of the specimen. This virtual object that can be viewed from all angles and sliced open or digitally dissected. Image by Dan Sykes.
