Researchers study an x-ray of the Shroud. After the x-rays were taken, they were immediately processed and viewed. The risk of bringing exposed but unprocessed x-ray film through airports was too great and the ability to see the x-ray results on site would prove helpful. Interestingly, a temporary processing lab was set up in the only functioning bathroom in that part of the Royal Palace, causing occasional "traffic jams". Here (l to r) the late Ron London, member of STURP's radiography team, points out details of an x-ray to team members Tom D'Muhula and Robert Dinegar as the late Father Francis Filas (far right) of Loyola University in Chicago looks on. This is the first time this photograph has ever been published (1996).
