Micro CT

We have recently acquired a Quantum GX µCT (PerkinElmer) imaging system which generates images using X-rays.

The Quantum GX is a high-resolution system which not only allows generation of in vivo images of bones, but also enables imaging of soft tissue including tumours, the cardiovascular system, and the pulmonary system. The µCT is very flexible and allows the performance of rapid scans with low doses of radiation, as well as longer high-resolution scans. This means that the system is ideal for both in vivo high-throughput, longitudinal studies, as well as for high-resolution ex vivo scanning.  

Currently active projects:

  • Measurement of pulmonary fibrosis in mice
  • Soft tissue imaging of Egyptian fruit bat
  • Skeletal analysis of trout
