<p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> 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.
