AbstractIndustrial material researchers at the national Research Council Canada (NRC) investigate titanium foam plugs that have been implanted into rabbits. After six weeks, they use a Metris XT H industrial CT scanner to visualize bone in-growth into the porous titanium foam implants. Fast reconstruction of volumetric images enables the researchers to accurately trace where and to what extent bone structure has benetrated into the porous implant. Micro-CT technology allows the researchers to study-in 3D-with increased speed, depth and precision-the behaviour of the porous material, and is a major step forward for material development when compared to destructive and time-consuming 2D imaging technologies.
