Bone imaging and analysis with microCT

Bone imaging and analysis with microCT: Exploring the possibilities

Micro-computed tomography, or micro-CT, is being employed by a rapidly increasing number of laboratories for bone research. This webinar will give a better understanding of the methodology with its capabilities and limitations. The background of micro-CT bone analysis will be outlined, along with a introductory look at physical principles underlying the technique. There is a brief examination of the methodology of two important types of micro-CT analysis - morphometric and density measurement. Finally, there will be a review of some selected applications of micro-CT in published bone research, including both ex-vivo and in-vivo analysis of bone.
