A commission of the Antiquities Authourity in Myneia Governorate (200 KM SOUTH TO Cairo) have accompanies a mummy to conduct an x-ray and Computed Tomography Scan (CTS) in the local tumor center affiliated to Myneia University.
A Japanese research worker took part in scanning the mummy which was found in “Tehna Al Gabl” archeological site on the eastern bank of the Nile River.
That mummy belongs to the later era of the ancient Egypt’s history.
It is worth to mention that a CT scan، also known as computed tomography scan، makes use of computer-processed combinations of many X-ray measurements taken from different angles to produce cross-sectional (tomographic) images (virtual "slices") of specific areas of a scanned object، allowing the user to see inside the object without cutting. Other terms include computed axial tomography (CAT scan) and computer aided tomography.
Digital geometry processing is used to further generate a three-dimensional volume of the inside of the object from a large series of two-dimensional radiographic images taken around a single axis of rotation. Medical imaging is the most common application of X-ray CT. Its cross-sectional images are used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes in various medical disciplines. The rest of this article discusses medical-imaging X-ray CT; industrial applications of X-ray CT are discussed at industrial computed tomography scanning.
