Ibis mummy CT imaging: abstract and presentation

Description

Abstract:
Power Point presentation explaining scanning techniques and processing tools
Notes:
null: This project was the result of a collaboration between Egyptology researchers from the Joukowsky Institute at Brown University and medical imaging researchers at Rhode Island Hospital and seeks to utilize diagnostic imaging techniques to confirm the identity of an unprovenanced 2000-year-old ibis mummy found at an archaeological site in Egypt. This unique application of imaging technology to archaeology research was sought because removing the wrapping rom the mummy by hand would have risked irreversible damage to the delicate artifact. The study was used to confirm the presence of a mummified inside the wrappings. The imaging modality chosen for this project was computed tomography (CT) due to the availability of scanning devices and ability to quickly differentiate bone from other organic materials. 3D models of the CT volume for 3D printing (.stl files) were also generated as part of the project. Further information on scanning technique specifications and software packages used is included in the abstract and metadata. All imaging files are uploaded here in DICOM format.
Type of file: Power Point presentation
