The MicroCT scanner at Duke University is available for use by anyone, whether it be a Duke researcher, a scientists from another university or someone from the private sector. The machine uses x-rays to create 3D models of objects and even lets researchers look through their interiors slice-by-slice. Watch the video for some examples of research that the scanner is enabling. The MicroCT scanner is housed and maintained by the Shared Materials Instrumentation Facility (SMIF) in the Pratt School of Engineering. For a more detailed look at some of the projects mentioned in the video, visit Nikon's blog post on the MicroCT scanner.
