Evolutionary medicine aims to study disease development over long timescales, and through the study of mummified human remains, tissue information dating back thousands of years becomes accessible. Due to their status as ancient relics, nonintrusive techniques are preferable, and to date CT imaging is the most common modality. However, CT images lack soft-tissue contrast, making complementary MRI data desirable. Due to the extensively dehydrated nature and short T2 times of mummified tissues, acquiring such data is challenging. This research explored the use of the zero echo-time sequences and a high-performance gradient in mummy MRI, yielding yet unparalleled image quality.
