Abstract :

Journey into the past through imaging and learn the process in which people of different cultures were mummified. See what research teams have uncovered by their in-depth look into these remains and learn how diagnostic imaging changes how we study mummies. Noninvasive imaging has allowed us to go under the wrappings and uncover secrets never before seen. Learn how diagnostic paleontology is contributing to the study of disease in the modern world. Find out what new revelations have come about because of the imaging factor. Many images and stories throughout this presentation demonstrate the unique use of radiographers and their different imaging modalities. Teams of doctors, researchers, anthropologist, and radiographers, travel the world in search of ancient secrets, ancient disease and possible present-day cures. A segment will also spotlight my own 30 day trip to Peru where I imaged the Chachapoya mummies and remains, and created a digital database of the research. Join me in understanding how ancient remains are leading to modern day medical advancements as we travel to the past in Mummies Unwrapped.
