MicroCT Investigation of Bone Erosion and Deformation in an Osteoarthritic Rat Model
14 June 2016
This application note discusses the use of the Quantum GX imaging system to investigate and monitor longitudinal bone erosion in an osteoarthritis (OA) using the standard imaging software that is included with the system and PerkinElmer's novel advanced automated bone analysis software. The Quantum GX is a cutting-edge noninvasive imaging system that represents the latest advances in microCT technology in resolution, speed, and data visualization. This versatile preclinical imaging system is proven for a broad range of applications in pulmonary disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, orthopedics, cancer, and dentistry, with a range of animal capabilities from mice and rats to guinea pigs and rabbits.
