  • Accommodates large specimens (up to 100mm diameter x 120mm length)
  • Capable of 2.5 μm resolution (highest resolution is not available at all sample sizes.) Typical resolution for mouse bones is between 6 - 12μm.
  • Visual outputs: 2D and 3D images, movies, FEA meshes
  • Main bone parameters from analysis: TV (total volume [mm3]), BV (bone volume [mm3]), BV/TV, Tb.Th (thickness of the trabecular structure), Tb.N (number of trabeculae), Tb.Sp (trabecular separation)
