About this book

Paleoradiology is the use of X-rays and advanced medical imaging modalities in the evaluation of ancient human and animal skeletons as well as biological materials from archaeological sites. Paleoradiological studies have been performed on mummies, skeletal remains and fossils to determine their sex and age at death. "Diagnostic paleoradiology" is the use of X-ray studies to detect ancient diseases. The broad range of themes and imaging techniques in this volume reflects four decades of research undertaken by Don Brothwell in the fields of anthropology, human paleopathology, and zooarchaeology, combined with two decades of skeletal radiology experience during which Rethy Chhem read over 150,000 skeletal X-ray and CT studies.

Contents

History of paleoradiology.-Introduction to paleobiological materials.-Paleoradiology and skeletal and dental Analysis.-Paleoradiology, taphonomic process and humam variation.-Paleoradiology and human paleopathology.-Paleoradiology and animal paleopathology.
