New X-Ray microtomograph offers enhanced CT-scan possibilities
Updated: Jul 28, 2022
The Montpellier Ressources Imagerie platform (MRI) recently acquired a new ex-vivo X-ray microtomograph (EasyTom 150). This new facility makes it possible to study living and fossil organisms in a non-destructive manner. This is potentially game changing for the ConvergeAnt project since it allows to acquire CT-scans from complete giant anteater skulls and embryos at high resolution. Sérgio already made profit of the new tool for scanning a diversity of specimens. Thanks to Renaud Lebrun (Manager facility MRI-ISEM) for making this possible.
