This Facility contains Bone Mineral Densitometry (DXA) machines and two High Resolution MicroCT systems:

    1. Scanco XtremeCT with 82 microns resolution has capacity to scan in-vivo human subjects with isotropic 3D reconstruction. The system can also be used for large in-vitro specimens.
    2. Scanco VivaCT 40 with 10 microns resolution is a small animal system with scan length 14.5cm.

Both microCT scanners provide density parameters (volumetric), 3D microarchitectural indices and DICOM files for Finite Element Analysis.
