The SKYSCAN 1176 is a high performance in vivo micro-CT scanner for preclinical research. Is equipped with an 11-megapixel X-Ray detector. Image field width can be up to 68 mm allowing full body mouse and rat scanning or distal limb scanning for larger animals, such as rabbits, at pixel sizes of 9, 18 and 35µm. Variable X-Ray acceleration voltage and filters provide scanning flexibility to allow imaging of a wide range of samples from lung tissue to bone with titanium implants. The full range of SKYSCAN software is supplied, including fast volumetric reconstruction, software for 2D / 3D quantitative analysis and for realistic 3D visualization. The scanner is hosted at University of Southampton’s research facilities at Southampton General Hospital.
