    Boğazici-Kimya /Lifesci & İnovita & İSEK Ortak Semineri  

    From the first scanner invented in 1972, the Computed Tomography (CT) technology gradually expanded its use from the clinics to the research field. Only in 1994, with the presentation of the first commercially available bone microCT scanner by SCANCO Medical this technique started to become a standard in bone research. MicroCT is nowadays widely used for the characterization of biological tissues, biomaterials, implants, and a number of other applications requiring non-destructive quantitative characterization. The talk will introduce the basics of the technology and will focus on applications in the biomedical field. The characteristics of state of the art scanners and software for specimen ex-vivo, preclinical in-vivo, and human patient scanners will be further presented.
