This presentation by two local radiologists will offer audience members insights into routine medical Computer Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans, and how these technologies are applied to study mummies. Dr. Vu will speak specifically about Mumab, the modern-day mummy, and Dr. Hoang will address SDMoM’s Peruvian child mummies. The objective of the presentation is to inform audience members about imaging modality in general, and to explain what information it may provide in evaluating 500-year-old mummies.
