Medical scanner helps to unlock the mysteries of a giant prehistoric marine reptile 

A nearly meter-long skull of a giant fossil marine ichthyosaur found in a farmer’s field more than 60 years ago has been studied for the first time. Using cutting-edge computerized tomography (CT) scanning technology, the research reveals new information including details of the rarely preserved braincase. The almost 200-million-year-old fossil, which was found in 1955 at Fell Mill Farm in Warwickshire, had never formally been studied prior to this research.
