Micro-CT Scanning Options
Our simplest and fastest option is standard imaging of your sample. This process includes selecting the appropriate instrument and conditions to capture the details you want to obtain from the data. At the end of the work, you will receive an image stack of the reconstructed images showing the full imaging results along with complimentary copies of our 2D (DataViewer) and 3D (CTVox) visualization programs for 64-bit PC to allow you to review the results with your team and capture stunning images suitable for publications or presentations. Some industries that commonly utilize this level of service are pharmaceutical packaging, consumer packaging, and archaeological artifact examination.
Through our laboratory we also offer volumetric analysis as an additional service coupled with our imaging to help provide quantitative measurements from your image data. We have standard procedures available for porosity analysis, bone histomorphology, and structure thickness interpretation, suitable for work with additive manufacturing, bone studies, materials science, and product development. This service requires an initial conversation with someone on our team to define the goals of the analysis to allow us to best determine the most appropriate analysis services to bundle with your imaging. Using our analysis software, we create custom task lists for each set of customer data to help you answer the questions you want to solve through the work.
As a leading provider of micro-CT imaging and interpretation in the United States, we maintain connections to several specialized partners we are happy to introduce you to for projects which require complex analysis or advanced segmentation machine learning algorithms to help you find the most complete answers to your professional queries.
