3-D reconstructions and visualizations based on micro-CT imagery of a Hericium coralloides basidioma sample. A.Fixed and critical-point dried sample. Three histo-anatomical features can be recognized on the optical image (Pallua et al.2014): basal branch (1), side branches (2), and end branch structures (3). B. 3-D surface rendered image of the micro-CT-dataset processed by a connected component algorithm to ignore irrelevant structure such as small pieces caused by the inherent image noise. C. 3-D surface rendered image of the spatial thickness distribution (0–357mm). Credit: Pallua, Johannes D., et al, Mycologia, 20 Jan 2017.
