                         User Meeting 2008:

    

The annual SkyScan User Meeting took place in Antwerp from the 15th till the 17th of June. This year we welcomed over 70 SkyScan users from all continents. The first day the participants had the possibility to visit the SkyScan Headquarters in Kontich Antwerp. The next two days were reserved for the scientific presentations and poster sessions. During the meeting there was a contest for the best presentation, the best poster and the best micro-CT picture. The winners were:
·         Aymen I. Idris, Molecular Medicine Center, University of Edinburgh: BEST PRESENTATION: Bidirectional regulation of peak bone mass and age-related bone loss by the type I cannabinoid receptor
·         Greet Kerckhofs et al.,Dept of Metallurgy and Materials Eng., Catholic University of Leuven: BEST POSTER: Mechanical characterization of porous structures by combined use of micro-CT and in-situ loading
·         Allan Jones, Australian Microscopy and Micro-analysis Research Facility, University of Sydney BEST PICTURE: Flowers in the micro-CT

 

We thank all the presenter for their great contribution.
