Siemens microCAT II

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Positron emission tomography scanner


  1. Resource Description
    "The Siemens microCAT II is a high-resolution (27 microns in standard mode and 15 microns in high-resolution mode) CT scanner designed specifically for imaging small animals such as mice and rats. The radiation detector is configurable such that, for mice, the transaxial field of view is 5.4 cm and the axial field of view is 8 cm; whereas, for rats, the transaxial field of view is 8 cm and the axial field of view is 5.4 cm. We have utilized microCT for tumor imaging, for anatomical correlation for microPET studies, and for ex vivo imaging (e.g., structural analysis of porcine cardiac valves)."
