Micro CT - Scanco

Computed tomography (CT) has both clinical and pre-clinical applications, using X-ray beams in order to record data regarding the anatomy and density of specimens or living tissue. Micro-CT (μCT) technology enables to obtain information regarding the microstructure of organisms.

Our Scanco μCT 40 can scan images of ex-vivo specimens with a resolution of 8 μm voxel sizes.

The procedure occurs in 3 steps:

  1. Raw image acquisition by the Scanco μCT 40 machine.
  2. Rapid image reconstruction in the axial plane by an HP Z840 Workstation with a dedicated Graphics Processing Unit (GPU).
  3. User performed analysis done on an HPE Integrity rx2800 i4 tower.
