Mummies on display in the Archaeological Museum in Kraków has been tested radiology in the Department of Radiology, Medical College, Jagiellonian University by a team led by prof. dr. Andrzej Urbanik in 19951998. It was one of the first such interdisciplinary research in the world. In the case of the last survey, in addition to classic cross-sections, we used images and three-dimensional multiplanar reconstructions and virtual endoscopy technique TK. The results of the study were presented among others at the American Congress of radiology in Chicago in 1999 and at the European Congress of Radiology in Vienna in 2002, and were sent to leading museums in the world (including the Louvre, the Vatican Museums).
