MicroCAT Scanner Used for Screening
A high-resolution X-ray computed tomography (CT) system developed at ORNL by Mike Paulus and Shaun Gleason provides researchers with a high-throughput method of internally screening mice for defects and damage resulting from mutations. The MicroCAT scanner, which generates 3-D images in 7 to 20 minutes, eliminates the need to sacrifice and dissect the mice. This allows researchers to monitor ongoing changes in animals, thereby facilitating studies on disease progression, consequences of aging, and responses to therapies.
