The data from the scans was then processed by Interspectral. They used the Inside Explorer software.

Inside Explorer has transformed the way museum visitors interact with information and exhibits. The easy-to-use technology allows users to investigate anything from the human skeleton to a flower seed in extraordinary detail.

A recent example is the installation in Saint Louis Art Museum’s reimagined Egyptian galleries. Using Inside Explorer, visitors are able to unlock the hidden secrets of an Egyptian mummy by accessing a series of highly detailed CT-scans.

The Interspectral visualization platform is used by museums and cultural institutions around the world. It allows researchers and visitors to get new insights on a wide spectrum of cultural heritage objects. Needless to say, the spies of the Cold War would have loved it as well!
