Rush University Medical Center MicroCT and Histology Core Laboratory
Chicago, IL, US
Academic Core Facility
The primary mission of the MicroCT and Histology Core Laboratory is to provide state-of-the-art 3-D ex vivo imaging using microCT (a non-destructive, X-ray-based imaging modality) and to provide histology services.
The specimens for microCT must have inherent radio opacity (e.g., bone) or can be rendered radio-opaque (e.g., by the use of contrast agents).
Ex vivo X-ray micro-computed tomographic scanning of specimens
3D quantification of bone architecture and density
3D quantification of articular cartilage morphology and proteoglycan content
Exportation of images (slices) in TIFF or DICOM format
Creation of 3D renderings and animations of scanned objects
Hard tissue (undecalcifed) methylmethacrylate (MMA) processing and embedding
Hard tissue (undecalcifed) MMA microtome-based thin sections and cut and grind sections, including metal implants
Hard tissue (undecalcified) histology
Decalcified paraffin processing and embedding
Decalcified microtome-based thin sections
Decalcified histology of bone and soft tissues
