This paper illustrates the utility of micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) to study the process of tissue engineered bone growth. A micro-CT facility for imaging and visualising biomaterials in three dimensions (3D) is described. The facility is capable of acquiring 3D images made up of 20003 voxels on specimens up to 60mm in extent with resolutions down to 2μm. This allows the 3D structure of tissue engineered materials to be imaged across three orders of magnitude of detail. The capabilities...[Show more]
