In-vivo micro-CT with world's highest spatial resolution
  - maintenance-free 100kV X-ray source,
  - fully distortion corrected 11Mp X-ray camera,
  - up to 8000x8000 pixels in every slice,
  - down to 9Ám in-vivo 3D spatial resolution,
  - integrated physiological monitoring (breathing, movement detection, ECG) and gating,
  - software for 2D/3D image analysis, bone morphometry and realistic visualization


The SkyScan 1076 is a high performance in vivo micro-CT scanner for preclinical research. The large format 11 megapixel x-ray camera gives an unrivalled combination of resolution, image field size and scan speed - everything that is required in a busy and demanding biomedical research laboratory. Image field width up to 68 mm allows rat and mouse imaging, at pixel sizes of 9, 18 and 35Ám. Variable x-ray applied voltage and filters provide scanning flexibility to allow imaging of a wide range of samples from lung tissue to bone with titanium implants. Animal beds for rats and mice are available made of carbon fiber or polystyrene foam. A physiological monitoring subsystem provides breathing and heart-beat gating for proven thoracic image improvement by synchronized acquisition. The full range of SkyScan software is supplied, including fast volumetric reconstruction, software for 2D / 3D quantitative analysis and for realistic 3D visualization.
