The IU School of Medicine Micro Computed Tomography Center, located on the school’s Indianapolis campus, houses two Skyscan systems with the versatility to scan skeletal and non-soft biological tissues at high resolution. Scan reconstruction and analysis software can be used on the scanning systems or they can be installed on individual laboratory workstations. Self-service or full-service scanning is available.
Skyscan 1172, 100KV, with 10Megapixel camera system has variable magnification (pixel size between 0.9-35 µm) and can hold ex vivo samples with a maximum diameter of 68 mm. It also has fixed magnification (pixel size of 9, 18, or 36 µm) and can be used for both in vivo animals, typically rodents (can hold rabbits) and ex vivo samples.
