Quantitative Micro-Imaging

The Quantitative Micro-Imaging Facility is equipped to provide both ex- and in-vivo high resolution computed tomography.  With two state of the art High Resolution peripheral Quantitative Computed Tomography (HR-pQCT) scanners, we have the capability to perform Bone Morphometry, Skeletal Phenotyping, Cancer and Vascular Imaging, and Osteoporosis and Rheumatoid Arthritis Imaging.  We can also perform Fourier Transform Infrared Imaging (FTIR).

Getting Started

We provide you with full support along all aspects of your study. Beginning the process is easy. You may begin by contacting us with any questions and preliminary ideas for your experiment.
