Radiology Performs 3D CT Scan on Child Mummy

Members of the Radiology and Medical Imaging Team at Cincinnati Children’s joined the staff of the Cincinnati Museum Center to perform a “virtual autopsy” on a child mummy more than 500 years old from the Peruvian desert.

It’s the first time a human mummy has had the procedure at Cincinnati Children’s. The team is volunteering their time to study more than 12,000 images to reach a detailed assessment of how the child lived and died.
