    X-ray Microscopic Inspection of Poultry Bones

    Micro-CT imaging is used to assess trabecular and cortical bone morphology, allowing researchers to measure bone microarchitecture without relying on stereologic models. Researchers can non-destructively acquire the three-dimensional architecture of bone from any site within a small animal. The sample remains intact, allowing researchers to follow up with genetic and histological analysis. …

    Micro-CT Applications for Digitizing Biological Specimens

    (Above:) A neuropteran insect (genus Sisyra) showing musculature and general soft tissue morphology. Fixed in Bouin’s fluid and stained with I2E, scanned in ethanol. Virtual horizontal sections one voxel thick (top), and cutaway volume renderings (bottom). Muscles are especially clearly defined, and the complete penetration of iodine makes it more suitable than …
