MicroCT in vivo scanner

Model # of equipment:

TriFoil eXplore CT120 Small-Animal X-ray CT Scanner

Brief Description of equipment:

The Ohio University MicroCT Scanner (OUµCT) allows non-destructive 3D x-ray imaging and digitization of objects smaller than about 10 cm diameter.

Capabilities of the equipment:

Live animals (e.g., mice and rats) can be imaged and even instrumented, and the OUµCT provides cardiac and respiratory gating that reduces motion artifact. The scanner has a unique power generator that allows faster and cleaner imaging, which improves data quality for dense specimens while also reducing x-ray dose and cost for all specimens. Resolution ranges from 25-100 microns. Specimen densities range from anatomical soft tissues to industrial applications.

Location of equipment:

Konneker Research Labs 35
