Description The authors wish to present horizons of radiology reaching beyond medical applications and its potential to offer valuable information to our archaeologist /anthropologist/ art historian colleagues that would otherwise be lost or won in time consuming and tough alternative conservation processes. In 2003 to 2007, we examined over 40 various archaeological specimen (skeletal remains, artefacts, sculptures, burial vases) in cooperation with various archaeological and historical institutions. The specimen were examined on digital X-ray, multidetector CTs or both modalities, if found advantageous. The raw data was further digitally processed on standard diagnostic CT workstation in a manner providing the best visualisation of elements searched for by archaeologists/ anthropologists/art historians.
