Abstract

Over the last few years various research groups around the world have employed X-ray Computed Tomography (CT) imaging in the study of mummies - Toronto-Boston, Manchester. Prior to the development of CT scanners, plane X-rays were used in the investigation of mummies. Xeroradiography has also been employed. In a xeroradiograph, objects of similar X-ray density (very difficult to see on a conventional X-ray) appear edge-enhanced and so are seen much more clearly.
