A novel method of estimating pterosaur skeletal mass using computed
tomography scans.
Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology 34(6): 1466-1469

>From text:

Here, we present a novel method that uses computed tomography (CT)
scans to estimate the volume, and hence the mass, of pterosaur wing
bones and thus provides a more robust foundation for the methodology
adopted by Witton (2008).
