There is an endodontist near here with a dental scanner who said he would
do a scan of a shell for $150 cash if I left it with him. I never took him
up on it as the client lost interest but perhaps you can ask next time you
are in for a root canal. Not sure if it would work on a casting but would
probably work on some parts.
