Mummies, artifacts, and skeletal material that have been placed in a museum on display or in the museum's collection room require careful monitoring. Conservationists are concerned about any further deterioration of ancient material. Videoendoscopy in combination with conventional radiography can be employed to peer inside these objects or remains to determine if further conservation is required. The data can help determine what type of conservation may be necessary to stabilize the object or remains. Chapter 9 provides greater detail and case studies related to this VE application.
