MicroCT GE eXplore Locus SP (GE):
Computed X-ray Axial Tomograph for the non-destructive study of the microstructure and in vitro tomography:
›› Samples of up to 40 mm in diameter; resolution of 10 μm.
›› Different types of tissues, implants, scaffolds, etc.
›› Complete “section-by-section” imaging with a single rotation (cone beam volumetric technology); excellent image quality and “signal-to-noise” ratio.
›› “Bone Analysis Tool” software provided with:
•• BMD (Bone Mineral Density): It calculates the density of minerals in the bone, the bone volume fraction and the mineral content in the bone.
•• Anisotropy: It determines the degree of symmetry and the orientation of the trabecular structure.
•• Cortical Analysis: It determines “section-by-section” the width, surface area and the BMD value of the cortical bone.
•• Stereology: It provides the bone volume fraction, the ratio between the surface of the bone and its volume and the width of the trabecular plate.
•• Direct Measures: It determines the local trabecular width of a bone and allows obtaining a visual representation of this local width.
