Scanning sessions at The Center for Quantitative Imaging (CQI) (Pennsylvania State University)

In order to study the trabecular biomechanical properties of our bones, we don’t need to actually cut them! So, here we are, scanning a bunch of bones at the Center for Quantitative Imaging (CQI) of Penn State University (University Park), under the supervision of Dr. Timothy Ryan and Tim Stecko

The bones are placed inside a tube and fixed with foam.

 

Work in progress…..

 

Check and reconstruction of the data

 

After checking the quality of our scans, we can proceed with the reconstruction and, then, with the creation of a 3D model…and that is another story!
