Micro-CT Imaging Core

Welcome to Micro-CT Imaging Core

  • UCTLab

The Micro-CT lab is co-directed by Dr. Kurt Hankenson and Dr. X. Sherry Liu. The Micro-CT Imaging Core is located at Rm 511 Stemmler Hall. This core facility consists of an in vivo small animal micro-CT image system (Scanco vivaCT 40, Scanco AG, Switzerland), an ultra-high resolution specimen micro-CT imaging system (Scanco µCT 35, Scanco AG, Switzerland), and three HP Integrity rx2660 Servers.

Special thanks to Dr. Hyun-duck Nah-Cederquist who kindly joined her micro-CT server into our server cluster. The efficiency of image reconstruction and analysis has been increased 50%.
