Dinosaur Is First Patient at New Hospital

It was quite a debut for the Pomona Valley Health Center in Claremont.  While its doors officially opened on Monday, it had already had its first patient.  But the patient was nowhere near human.

According to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the skull of Gryposaurus monumentensis, also known as the duck-billed dinosaur.  It was the first to make use of the new center and its state-of-the-art, 64-slice CT scanner.

The fossil was discovered in 2002 during a paleontology trips conducted by Alf Museum of Paleontology on the grounds of the Webb Schools in Claremont.

The information gained through the scanning of the fossil will allow scientists in other parts of the world to study the dinosaur skull.
