3D Volume Rendering Technique (VRT) reconstruction from CT scans of the head of a Minke Whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) demonstrating entanglement via penetration of the maxillary bone and surrounding soft tissues by rope twine. Evidence of prior entanglement and fluid filled lungs indicated the likely cause of death to be suffocation by drowning (related report). Specimen courtesy of Cape Cod Stranding Network (CCSN/IFAW).
