Structural analysis of polymeric scaffolds by Micro-CT
Melchels, F.P.W., Grijpma, D.W., & Feijen, J. (2006) Structural analysis of polymeric scaffolds by Micro-CT. In 15th Annual Meeting of the Netherlands Society for Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, 2006, Lunteren, Netherlands.
The use of porous structures as tissue engineering scaffolds imposes demands on structural parameters such as porosity, pore size and interconnectivity. For the structural analysis of porous scaffolds, micro-computed tomography (μCT) is an ideal tool. μCT is a 3D X-ray imaging method that has several advantages over scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and other conventional characterisation techniques:
• visualisation in 3D • quantitative results • non-destructiveness • minimal sample preparation
