Computerised Tomography (CT) Imaging

Developed by: Centro Andaluz de Nanomedicina y Biotecnología BIONAND

Description

Computerised Tomography (CT) allows high quality 3D imaging of preclinical animal models based on the reconstruction of 2D X-ray images captured at different angles.  Albira uses dedicated beds for rats and mice with incorporated gas anesthesia.  Different image capture modes allows users to balance capture time and image quality. The Albira software suite automates the reconstruction process, while the included PMOD software allows users to perform advance analyses and to export data into popular formats such as DICOM.  The Multimodal Animal Transport System (MATS) allows the simultaneous CT imaging of up to 4 mice and the possibility of combining  CT data with fluorescence and/or MRI datasets.


Equipment

Bruker Albira small animal CT system

Applications

  • Tumour imaging and quantification.
  • Bone and implantation studies.
  • Anatomical  CT data for use in conjunction with other modalities such as fluorescence, MRI, PET and SPECT.
