Our collaborators, Dr. Stupp and Dr. Erin Hsu just published a paper about their research using a nanomaterial to promote bone growth. We did some of the microCT imaging and helped them with analysis. Congratulations to them.

CAMI has recently added a new service, bone mineral density imaging using microCT.  Using a new hydroxyapatite phantom from QRM, we can now calibrate microCT images to quantitatively measure bone mineral density.  This technique is especially useful in preclinical studies of bone regenerative medicine, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and skeletal phenotyping.
