Anatomical Imaging of Large Specimens

X-ray CT may be used to image the internal structural features of living specimens. The CereTom is a large bore (25 cm) system that was acquired to accommodate large animals, such as rabbits.

Matthew Ravosa’s laboratory uses this system to analyze the jaw development of rats under varied dietary conditions. The CT provides a visual output of anatomical changes, which may be then quantified using either geometric or radiodensity measurements.
