  5-8 May, 2014

  Ostend / Belgium

 

 

As a yearly tradition we are happy to invite all our users to the annual international Micro-CT User Meeting. This year we have chosen a historical setting at the Belgian coast. The venue will be held at the Thermae Palace Hotel, a former royal bathing palace built for King Albert I in Ostend in 1933.
 

Join us for presentations of state-of-the-art micro-CT applications in both material and life science and a great networking opportunity! We hope you can enjoy this nice location and the Micro-CT User Meeting 2014!

1pm-5pm, Monday, May 5  Parallel Training Sessions

For those users who would like to attend a training session on Monday afternoon, we have selected 5 topics covering a broad range of applications and methods from which you can choose. Laptops will be available for the training session, but you are of course welcome to bring your own!

1

Overview of the technology (hard- and software)

 

For users who are new to microCT and want to learn more about the potential of the technology, this session will cover scanning, reconstruction, analysis and 3D viewing options. ‘A good scan results in a good analysis’, so we will focus on optimizing scan settings and reconstruction parameters in order to reduce artefacts.

2

Bone and dental essentials

 

This session will go over the essential methodology for analysis of bones and teeth. Both basic information for new users and advanced analysis methods will be discussed. You will have access to datasets of bones and teeth to train on using different SkyScan software programs for quantification of parameters and visualization.

3

Soft tissue applications: what we can / can’t analyze

 

This session will cover the use of the most commonly used contrast agents in vivo as well ex vivo. Synchronization techniques for lung and cardiac gating will also be discussed and example datasets will be available for analysis and 3D visualization.

4

Analyzing pores in 3D

 

This session deals with all aspects of porosity: interpreting a pore in 2D and 3D, the difference between open and closed pores and linking this to connectivity. Example datasets will be available for hands on experience for both visualization and analysis of the pores.

5

Generating custom processing task lists

 

Automation of your analysis protocol is often the last step in the process. This session will show you how to build a task list, and ‘run’ this on separate datasets. Tips and tricks on how to make your task list will be discussed and you will be able to practice this on a several datasets provided.
