There's mention of a Mummy Project

http://www.algomhuria.net.eg/egyptian_mail/m2/

Quote:
"The project to examine the ancient mummies consists of four stages," says Zahi Hawass, Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities.
"The first stage involves examining the photographs of the five mummies discovered in the Valley of the Kings. Then the second stage in September will witness 10,000 'ordinary' [i.e. non-royal] mummies being transferred to el-Fostat [in Old Cairo] for treatment.
"In the third stage, we're going to study the golden mummies discovered in Bahariya Oasis. The fourth stage of this exclusively Egyptian project will involve further study of the royal mummies," Hawass adds.

The article mentions high tech X-ray machines. CAT scans???
