Shown is an image of a mummy's head and neck, captured Sunday, Oct. 12, via computerized tomography (CT) at the Center for Advanced Medicine on the Washington University Medical Center campus in St. Louis. The computer adds color to the 3D images to exaggerate differences in tissue. This is a CT scan of Henut-Wedjebu, an upper-class woman from the 13th century B.C. who was buried with her brain still in her skull. (Robert Boston)
