OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to use MDCT to examine two mummies found in the tomb of King Tutankhamun to estimate their gestational ages at mummification, to determine the mummification method, and to investigate the congenital deformities of one of the mummies that had been suspected at previous medical examinations. MATERIALS AND METHODS MDCT was performed on the mummies of the daughters of King Tutankhamun (article numbers 317a and 317b), and the images were reconstructed and… 
Computed Tomography-Detected Paleopathologies in Ancient Egyptian Mummies.
TLDR
A systematic review of previously published cases and summarize artificial changes and detectable paleopathologies in Egyptian mummies to standards in documentation of CT devices have changed over the past 40 years, and insufficient documentation limits the interpretation of findings.
Difficulties for cardiovascular retrospective diagnosis on mummified foetal remains
TLDR
The recent article by Séguéla et al raises the problem of longterm conservation and retrospective diagnosis on foetal mummified bodies with some incertitude with regard to the methods and results, needing further data from both forensic anthropology and radio-pathology points of view.
A Critical Look at Mummy CT Scanning
TLDR
A critical assessment of the development of mummy CT scanning is presented and the results of two Egyptian mummies CT'ed at the Penn Museum are presented as an example of the potentials and pitfalls of high‐resolution scanning.
Subcutaneous Packing in Royal Egyptian Mummies Dated From 18th to 20th Dynasties
TLDR
Computed tomographic images showed subcutaneous packing procedure was used as part of mummification of royal Ancient Egyptians dated to 18th to 20th dynasties earlier than what was believed in archaeology.

CT examination and 3D analysis of Egyptian animal mummies
TLDR
CT is a valuable noninvasive technique to study Egyptian mummies, enabling in-depth analysis while preserving the integrity of the mummy bundles, ensuring protection of a valuable archaeological resource.
Multidetector Computed Tomographic Study of Amulets, Jewelry, and Other Foreign Objects in Royal Egyptian Mummies Dated From the 18th to 20th Dynasties
TLDR
Placement of an amulet within the heart supports the knowledge that its funeral purpose was meant for the purpose of protection and differentiates funerary objects from those that may be related to cause of death.
Paleopathology of the juvenile Pharaoh Tutankhamun—90th anniversary of discovery
TLDR
Summarising all findings which have been collected between 1922 and 2010, including computed tomography and molecular pathology, a diversity of disease is verifiable: chronic/degenerative diseases and inflammatory disease.

A mummified foetus from the tomb of Tutankhamun
TLDR
Serological investigation of tissue fiom the foetus suggests the presence of bloodgroup M and H substances, and possible rehtionships of this foetus to other pharaonic remains already investigated are discussed.
Fetal bone age revisited: Proposal of a new radiographic score
TLDR
The post-mortem skeletal radiographs of 85 selected normal fetuses aged from 15 to 41 weeks of gestation (WG) were analysed and a fetal bone age score was established that was well correlated with the age obtained by extraosseous criteria of maturation.
Whole-body three-dimensional multidetector CT of 13 Egyptian human mummies.
TLDR
The results obtained with this protocol provided important anthropologic and paleopathologic information that would have been impossible to obtain by other noninvasive techniques and has great potential for studies of conservation, anthropology, and paleopathy of other Egyptian and ancient human remains.
Ancestry and pathology in King Tutankhamun's family.
TLDR
Use of a multidisciplinary scientific approach showed the feasibility of gathering data on Pharaonic kinship and diseases and speculated about individual causes of death in Tutankhamun.
Ossification sequence in infants who die during the perinatal period: population-based references.
TLDR
The reference diagrams calculated with this method indicate relationships between ossification sequence and both gestational age and skeletal length measurements among infants who die during the perinatal period.
Radiological estimation of foetal maturity.
TLDR
It is claimed that ante-natal radiological estimation of foetal maturity can now offer a new or improved yardstick to both obstetrician and paediatrician and for some few weeks after birth radiological estimates may well supplant all other methods.
A re-assessment of the larger fetus found in Tutankhamen's tomb
TLDR
New research on estimating the age of a fetus is shown to support the twin hypothesis, while recent work on Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome explains why they could be such different sizes.

Of all the techniques used to identify children’s skeletal remains, age assessment is the most reliable a forensic anthropologist can provide. In forensic contexts, assigning an age to a living child
