(DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING, Rebekah Moan) -- X-ray reveals Italian saint died from a cardiac embolism
An x-ray taken centuries after her death proves a well-known saint died from a cardiac embolism instead of tuberculosis, as was previously thought. The body of Santa Rosa, an 18- or 19-year old girl, was naturally mummified in the 13th century.
