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

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
