The Andrea Amati cello underwent a CT-scan at the Sanford Vermillion Medial Clinic (Vermillion, SD) in order to provide researchers with detailed and accurate, three-dimensional X-ray images in a digital format.  Such scans enable the interior of closed instruments to be viewed without the obvious hazards involved in opening them.  The CT-scan (tomography) provides a clear image of construction methods and materials, as well as the evidence of repairs, damaged areas, woodworm damage, and even the presence of foreign objects.
