Project description

Preclinical CT is an imaging technique that is considered as cost-effective and highly efficient for the production of three-dimensional high-resolution images of the anatomy of living animals or the internal structure of samples in a non-disruptive way. We aim to replace our broken-down CT-system with a latest-generation benchtop-device with improved characteristics. Preclinical CT has a wide range of research applications.
