An investigation into how to see the inside of a rock

I am going to create a series of maps that show the inside of the rock. Each mark is a path of a worm and I want to translate this into a network of paths and landmarks on a map. To do this to the most accurate way, I need to see the inside of the rock.

How? possible ways that I have been exploring:

Threading through the rocks with string

Casting in ceramics

Medical scanning – X Ray, Ultrasound

3D print

Pinhole surgery cameras – cameras that can get into tiny spaces?

XRD scan (X-Ray Diffraction), (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-ray_crystallography), but this is more of a tool to identify or confirm the identity of an individual mineral in a rock.
