CT SCAN

In 1999 a CT Scan of the Starchild Skull was conducted at the Children's Hospital of New Orleans, in Louisiana USA. These scans have been useful to many experts investigating the Skull, as they confirm that the sutures (lines where the bones of the skull meet) were healthy and normal at the time of death, and not abnormally fused. The scan also shows that the inner ears of the Skull were about twice the size of those in a normal human.
