Scanco VivaCT 80 Micro X-ray CT

Scanco VivaCT 80 Micro X-ray CT

The vivaCT 80 is the in-vivo microCT scanner that offers the largest field-of-view (80 mm) and the best resolution (5 µm) in its category and is hence the most versatile scanner for the in-vivo X-ray micro computed-tomography imaging of mice, rats, and extremities of larger animals up to small rabbits.

The vivaCT 80 benefits from a narrow cone beam angle geometry and a mechanically adjustable field-of-view for best image quality at low radiation dose. Fast scan speed at intermediate and lower resolutions is supported by the new scanner mechanics.
