mouse lung

In a new project we scan mouse lungs in which tumors were induced. The lung was critically-point-dried and scanned on a SkyScan 1272 with a source voltage of 50 kV, a source current of 200 µA with camera and geometry settings leading to an isotropic voxel size of 8 µm. The whole scan took about 53 minutes. The tumor is visible in the lower part of the left lung lobe and has a size of approximately 2 mm.

The data set was visualized in CTVox and exported to a set of images. We manually removed some cruft in the images and generated a movie as described before.
