Clinical computed tomography (CT) scanners are interesting for paleontological research because of their high availability and the potential to image internal structures in addition to the surface. Here we report the technical effort, workflow and image quality of clinical CT compared to photogrammetry for a large fossil, the skull of a Tyrannosaurus rex (MB.R.91216) from the Maastrichtian of Montana, U.S.A. CT scanning data comprises all 47 preserved skull bones and 3D models. The clinical CT scanner was an Aquilion ONE- Vision Edition, Toshiba Medical Systems, Tochigi, Japan. Show more
