A 3D multiscale view has been developed for medical datasets that are composed of multiple images of very different spatial sizes. The example data consisted of 3 volume images of bone: a 400 mm femur; a 20 mm micro-CT image of trabeculae; and a 0.5 mm nano-CT image of a single trabecula. The images were nested, the nano-CT being inside the micro-CT, which(More)
Scanning small and wide angle X-ray scattering (scanning SWAXS) experiments were performed on healthy and pathologic human bone sections. Via crystallographic tools the data were transformed into quantitative images and as such compared with circularly polarized light (CPL) microscopy images. SWAXS and CPL images allowed extracting information of the(More)
Personal Digital Assistant devices are becoming a frequently used device for the bedside care of the patient. Ways of application are many, but limitations are also numerous. Input device and monitor resolution are limited by the device size. Moreover, the choice of specific programs and the amount of storable data are limited by the quantity of memory.(More)
—Synchrotron-based digital radiography and microto-mography devices are powerful, nondestructive, high-resolution research tools. In this paper, we present a linear system with a pixel size of 22.5 m and a field-of-view (FOV) 13 cm long and about 1 mm high. The system is composed of a linear converter GOS screen coupled to an intensified electron-bombarded(More)
Aims Microtomographic devices (Micro-CT) are commonly used for in-vitro analysis of trabecular bone structure and its relation to the mechanical behavior of the tissue. The standard examination for the evaluation of the trabecular resistance to load is the assessment of its bone volume fraction (BV/TV) [1, 2]. Even though the BV/TV has been proved to(More)
