LOTUS-inVivo provides extremely high-quality images with contrast-to-noise, resolution and dose performance optimized for pre-clinical imaging.Also, it is a high performance, stand-alone, fast in-vivo and ex-vivo micro-CT with continuously variable magnification for scanning small objects (teeth samples, …). It has an unrivaled combination of high resolution, big image size, possibility for 3D reconstructions, and low dose imaging. The image field of view (up to 80 mm wide and more than 200 mm long) allows full object size scanning. The variable magnification allows scanning all kind of samples with high spatial resolution down to 10 µm pixel size. Variable X-Ray energy combined with a range of optional filters ensures optimal image quality for diverse research applications from soft tissues imaging to bone and teeth studies.
