vivaCT 75 - in vivo microCT

The large field-of-view of vivaCT 75 allows whole-body in vivo scans of rodents to be made. The low X-ray dose permits serial measurements of individuals during studies, and fast scanning simplifies handling.

A range of beds for in vivo use as well as specimen scans are supplied. Access ports through the X-ray shielding are included to aid delivery of anesthetic and connection of cables for physiological monitoring. In addition, optional equipment for anesthesia as well as physiological monitoring and gating are available.
