Quantitative Imaging Centre

The Quantitative Imaging Centre at our Edmonton Research Park facility is built around the capabilities of a Toshiba Aquilion One X-ray CT scanner – a third generation 320-slice helical scanner capable of imaging up to 1.9m in length with a field of view up to 50cm in diameter.

With 72kW of power and advanced iterative reconstruction, the scanner can acquire low-noise images in seconds or minutes (as fast as one-third of a second in volume mode), for conducting dynamic experiments. The 72cm bore and 300kg weight limit can accommodate large-scale experiments in a laboratory setting. Nominal voxel sizes down to 1/3mm are available.
