The skeleton of an acanthomorph


The skeleton of an acanthomorph can be studied with different techniques: osteological dissections, radiographs, staining by the cleared and stained, optic and electronic microscopies, scanners and MRI   ...

thanks to a radiograph, it is possible to observe the skeleton of a specimen without dissecting it, like in this European perch  (Perca fluviatilis, Percidae) :
