Micro-CT analysis of tissue engineering scaffold architectures
Melchels, Ferry, Rijckaert, Bart, Grijpma, Dirk, & Feijen, Jan (2008) Micro-CT analysis of tissue engineering scaffold architectures. In BMTI/iBME Symposium : Highlights in BioMedical Technology, 20 November 2008, Enschede, Netherlands.
A novel method was developed for a quantitative assessment of pore interconnectivity using micro-CT data. This method makes use of simulated spherical particles, percolating through the interconnected pore network. For each sphere diameter, the accessible pore volume is calculated. This algorithm was applied to compare pore interconnectivity of two different scaffold architectures; one created by salt-leaching and the other by stereolithography. The algorithm revealed a much higher pore interconnectivity for the latter one.
