  * Note: The braincase of FMNH PR 2100 was rescanned in October 2006 at O'Bleness Memorial Hospital in Athens, OH, on a GE LightSpeed Ultra at a slice thickness of 625 microns and using the Extended Hounsfield option and bow-tie filter. These scan data are somewhat better that those used for the published article, and are the data from which the movies and Acrobat 3D files presented here were made. Likewise, the CT scan data hosted here are the October 2006 data. The new data fully support the findings published in the article, but provide higher resolution and hence better views.
