The same physical science characterization techniques that we are using to study pathological calcification can be easily adapted for the study of several other systems, including fossils. This is an exciting possibility to uncover the nano/micro structures present in fossilized bones from dinosaurs and reveal how the original organic matrix shaped these structures, with a final objective to understand how the fossilization process affects these.
