As a paleopathologist
Arthur was interested not only in the study of human skeletons, but also in the study of soft tissues dried by environmental factors in different deserts around the world.
But when he showed the fossil to paleopathologist
Michael Schultz of the Georg-August University in Gottingen, Germany, Schultz recognized the pattern.
Armelagos, a paleopathologist
at Emory University in Atlanta.
is offering a second opinion in the case of an Ice Age bear with syphilis.
Marvin was one of the great paleopathologists
and a pioneer of bioarchaeology though poorly recognized within academic circles in the developed world.
Written for those examining skeletal remains or dealing with bone disease, such as beginning skeletal paleopathologists
, physical and other anthropologists, police, crime scene technicians, medical examiners, radiologists, anatomists, other medical specialists, and students, this photographic atlas contains b&w photos and color plates of common pathological conditions encountered in dry-bone specimens.
This book will be an important resource particularly for medical historians and paleopathologists
but will be of interest to the medical profession.
After examining research of more than 3,000 mummies, anatomists and paleopathologists
at the University of Zurich concluded that 18 percent of all mummies in case reports showed a nightmare array of dental diseases.
It provides an overview of the current state of research and potential applications in anthropology or any other field that employs a histological approach to study hard tissues (bones and teeth), detailing how skeletal material is studied by bioarchaeologists, paleopathologists
, and paleontologists to shed light on biological processes.
The mummies were dissected by the paleopathologists
and archaeologists at the Museo Arqueologico San Miguel of the Universidad de Tarapaca in Arica, Chile between the early 1970s to about 2004.
In some cases, paleopathologists
are turning to modern medical techniques such as CAT scans and immunologic tests to diagnose ancient diseases.
could previously only diagnose ancient infections, this new technique allows a direct identification of the infectious organism itself.
