It’s an endeavor the Children’s Hospital joked that it wanted to keep under wraps.

A mummy from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science arrived at the hospital on Monday night for a CT scan.

“Our oldest patient yet!” the Children’s Hospital tweeted.

The mummy was last scanned 20 years ago. Since better technology is available now, the museum wants to update its records.

The museum will be doing isotope testing on the mummy on Tuesday. The goal is to help researchers narrow down the mummy’s age – most of them are believed to be 3,000 to 4,000 years old!
