Specimen CT Scanning

CT scanning and Advanced Post-Processing: 

Exploring the Natural World

Specimen CT scanning is being used by researchers to understand complex organic structures as well as other inorganics in nature. 

You’re probably familiar with the use of 2D X-rays, MRIs, and ultrasounds in biomedical imaging. Delphi Precision Imaging’s organic CT scans can provide some of the same data and insights as some medical imaging services; however, we are not able to scan any creature with a heartbeat. In addition to organic CT scans, we are also able to scan and image inorganic materials.  

Why Choose Industrial CT Scanning for Your Specimens 

An industrial CT scan is ideal when you need to take a closer look at the finer details of a specimen and specific areas compared to the holistic view an MRI or ultrasound may provide. Examples of insights industrial CT scans can provide include muscle or tissue tears or structural anomalies. Depending on the type of specimen, organic or inorganic, Delphi Precision Imaging may be able to provide advanced analysis services.


Why Choose Delphi?  

When you choose Delphi for your specimen CT scanning, you’ll get personalized attention from our imaging specialists. After your scan is finished you’ll receive a library of images, a movie of the images, and the ability to manipulate a 3D model of the scanned object.   

Take a closer look at our own examples of the in-depth information Delphi Precision Imaging’s inorganic and organic CT scans provide. 

Here are a few examples where the versatility of inorganic and organic CT scans, as well as post-processing of the 3D data, are showing our world in new ways. 

Vampire Bat CT Scan

Intricate and Delicate Bone Structures. Industrial CT Scanning reveals details of specimens, even if tightly packed.  Individual bones and assemblies of bones and be isolated and virtually articulated.

Differentiate subtle variations. Although coral may appear to be a simple and homogeneous structure, the internal details show there is more to it than that.
