Scanning a Giraffe
Professor John Hutchinson, a zoologist specialising in animal locomotion, prepares a Computerised Tomography (CT) scan of of a giraffe's foreleg. Professor Hutchinson regards the CT scan as a 'virtual freezer' as, once scanned, he can access all the necessary anatomical data data of the specimen even though the carcase may have perished or been destroyed. This giraffe, like all the other creatures on which he works are donated by zoos, where they die naturally.Professor Hutchinson works at the Royal Veterinary College, UK.
