Workshop 3d virtual histology

The capabilities of laboratory-based microCT for biomedical imaging

Classical histology is a standard method in biomedical research. It enables the imaging of the threedimensional sample structure by looking at individual slices through the object but is time-consuming and destructive. 
Due to the large penetration depth and small wavelength of x-rays MicroCT offers a promising alternative for (non-destructive) 3D biomedical imaging as it combines capabilities of high-resolution and large sample volume. 
In classical CT contrast is based on absorption which is very low for soft tissue like the organs or the brain. However, by exploiting the much stronger phase shift for contrast formation this limitation can be overcome. 
The combination of a liquid-metal jet microfocus x-ray source, suitable sample preparation techniques and analysis tools yields excellent results in a variety of tissues and imaging on different length scales ranging from large overview to small region of interest scans with (sub-)cellular resolution is possible.

Maximum number of participants is 15.
