01.10.2018 | Ancient Artifacts, 21st Century Technology: Unlocking the Mummies’ Secrets | Free

January 10 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


In October of 2014, the Saint Louis Art Museum teamed up with the Washington University School of Medicine and the Kemper Art Museum to transport our three ancient mummies to the Center for Advanced Medicine at Barnes-Jewish Hospital for CT scans. Curator of ancient art Lisa Cakmak and radiologists from Washington University’s Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology will discuss the use of modern medical imaging techniques on ancient artifacts and what they discovered from the mummy scans.
