Imaging of dehydrated objects is usually performed with CT due to the low water content. With the development of MR sequences with short or even zero echo times, MR is also able to detect tissues with fast decaying signal like bones or teeth. In this work the potential of the ZTE technique has been evaluated on an ancient Egyptian mummified fish and compared to other imaging modalities like CT and Terahertz imaging.
