For the first time, Luxor’s Shefaa El Orman Oncology Hospital received Dr. Zahi Hawass and young man’s mummy that dates back to the times of Ancient Egypt for conducting examinations by the latest updated CT Scan technology-based devices in Egypt and the world for identifying the mummy.
The examination is part of a new project established by Hawass for identifying the owners of the anonyms mummies.
Hawass said that he brought the mummy from Amenhotep II (KV 35) for studying it at the hospital which is special to him as he participated in promoting the hospital since its founding. In addition, he believes that this hospital presents high quality services and it is the first free-service hospital for oncology in Upper Egypt.
During the process of examining the mummy, the iconic Egyptologist took samples from the body’s DNA, and he headed the team for the process of studying the body with the CT Scan devices.
Hawass and his international team were received by Dr. Hany Hussein, the General Manager of Shefaa El Orman hospitals in Luxor, alongside several officials and staff members as they assert the vital role of the hospital in serving the Egyptian history and civilization, alongside its medical role in treating the children in Luxor and Upper Egypt from cancer.
