CT course

This course is addressed to life sciences researchers and technicians who routinely work with complex biological structures (specimens) and need to digitise their samples for different reasons, such as digital preservation, quantitative or biomechanics analyses, etc. The goal of this course is to explain how you can work with a range of technologies with the aim of obtaining a 3D virtual models from different sources, such as laser imaging, photogrammetry and (micro) computed tomography (CT). By the end of the course participants should be able to obtain high quality digitalizations of samples with the most commonly used techniques and also be able to edit and manipulate the digital models that are produced. Attendees will also learn to stain with Lugol’s iodine, a specific technique for specimen preparation for micro CT scanning which maximizes soft-tissue differentiation in CT imaging datasets.
