Stradivarius built using an X-ray
The legendary musical instrument, whose sound is said to be one the purest of its kinds, was reproduced by researchers through a device that is typically used to detect injuries and cancers, reported the BBC.
Through the use of a CAT (computerised axial tomography) scan, the rare 307-year-old violin was scanned into a computer. In total, over 1,000 images were taken.
From this data the instrument was created as near to its original shape as possible, a result which could have radical implications as to how musical instruments are made in the future.
"There is a lot of anatomy - I'm used to evaluating anatomy in people and I saw a lot of detail that I had no understanding of, so I took the CT scan to my friend John Waddle, who is a violin maker, and I gave him the images," radiologist Steven Sirr told the BBC.
In similar news the orchestra of Fort Worth Symphony were basking in joy after being gifted another Stradivarius violin.
