You’ve heard of ultra-sounds, right? And you know about those age-enhancement programs that law enforcement officials use to predict what a guy who went on the lam twenty years would look like today? Well, the Journal Of Pediatric Imaging is reporting on a fascinating new imaging technology that combines these two techniques.

To demonstrate this capability the researchers again used a celebrity.

And they found that this guy:


Looked like this when he was young:
