In July 1993, the Hunterian Museum of the University of Glasgow was offered a sandstone block with a clutch of intact dinosaur eggs, from Hunan Province, China. Later, a number of single eggs were also acquired.

An inter-disciplinary project began to investigate the structure of these eggs. Investigations carried out included egg shell structure analysis, protein analysis, and a program of imaging including CT|, neutron radiography, and MRI.

In this poster, the results of imaging the eggs in two commercial high field MRI scanners based at Glasgow hospitals, are presented. The MR scanners are Seimens 1.0 T Impact and 1.5 T Magnetom.
