how to scan mucous, if ever

The 2/14/2009 issue of the Palm Beach Post has the column authored by Dr. Peter Gott, 'Your Health' -- one of two doctors contributing to the 'Your Health' theme as printed up in different newspapers in the region. Under the title 'Costochondritis downright painful for one sufferer', the doctor explains that the condition "cannot be seen through any imaging test...is an inflammation of the cartilage that connects the ribs to the breastbone, resulting in sharp pain. When accompanied by swelling, the condition is known as Tietze syndrome."

Although bone, cartilage and mucous can be grouped in the same category, only bone can be machine x-rayed with pictoral success...which is to say that hopes to develop an archaelogical scanner sensitive enough to detect and generate images of a mucousal oracle-bead chronicle artifact might never actually be realized. Plus, there can be no practice sessions to determine the amount of radiation that an oracle-bead artifact might withstand -- the unusual organic historical beadform chronicle is just too small and too rare to risk its possible dispersion, rather than revelation of its historical content-imagery and internal voicestrip.
