Director: Sasaki, Hajime, D.D.S., Ph.D.

Location: The Forsyth Institute, 245 First Street - 4th Floor, Cambridge, MA, 02142

Summary:

The Forsyth Institute established the micro computed tomography core in 2011. The Facility is located in the 4th floor of the Forsyth research building. The core now accepts samples from outside academic institutions and for-profit organizations.

Instruments

  • μCT 40 with auto sample exchanger ( Computed tomography scanner )

    The scanner is designed for 3D X-ray imaging of small samples in high resolution, and will provide images and quantitative analyses of internal structures of ex vivo samples without any destructive procedures. The non-destructive nature of this technology allows investigators to carry out complementary analyses (e.g., histology) of the same samples. The instrument is basically designed for mineralized tissues. However, imaging of soft tissue, such as blood vessels, is also possible if an appropriate contrast reagent is used.

Services

  • Micro Computed Tomography ( Material analysis service )

    Allows acquisition of 3D X-ray images from small samples in high resolution; permits quantitative analyses of internal structures of ex vivo samples without any destructive procedures. Imaging of soft tissue, such as blood vessels, is also possible if an appropriate contrast reagent is used. Please contact the director for further information about the service.
