Core Summary

The nano- and micro-Computed Tomography facility core provides services for acquiring three-dimensional imaging and quantitative analysis of biological and engineered structures/materials, including metals, silica-based chips and plastics. The core is capable of imaging mineralized tissues (e.g., bone, teeth) and soft tissues (e.g., tendons, ligaments, cartilage, blood vessels, muscle) with the aid of radiographic contrast agents. This core is managed and operated by members of the Orthopaedic Research Laboratories.

For Michigan Integrative Musculoskeletal Health Core Center P30 members, 20% of the cost is covered by the core center for the ex vivo systems and analysis
