X-ray Micro CT, Software
  • Import of dataset in tiff, bmp, jpg
  • Angular resampling of datasets
  • Advanced volume-of-interest (VOI) selection tool
  • Measures 3D distances and angles
  • Creates Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP) images
  • Calibrates and measures density as HU, BMD or attenuation coefficient
  • Image processing functions, such as smooth, despeckle morphologic operations, etc.
  • Switch between general scientific and bone morphometry parameter names
  • Automated batch analysis
  • Measurements validation with real and virtual phantoms
  • Creates 3D models by several rendering algorithms

  • Parameters measured in 2D and 3D include:

    • Object or "bone" surface
    • Structure or "trabecular" thickness
    • Structure or "trabecular" separation, number
    • Structure model index (SMI)
    • Fragmentation index or "Trabecular pattern factor"
    • Euler number
    • Degree of anisotropy by MIL
    • MIL eigenvalues and stereology
    • Fractal dimension (Kolmogorov)
    • Moments of inertia (x, y, polar, product)
    • Eccentricity
    • Cortical periosteal perimeter (outer perimeter of tube)
    • Cortical endosteal perimeter (inner perimeter of tube)
    • Object or "bone" porosity
