TrACEES Micro-CT Workshop
School of Earth Sciences
X-Ray Computed Tomography (XCT) is a technique for the non-destructive 3D visualization of the internal structure of objects.
The TrACEES platform at the University of Melbourne currently operates a GE Phoenix Nanotom M micro-CT scanner with a resolution ranging from 1 micrometer to 70 micrometer on an object 1 mm3 to ~3000 cm3 in size.
This workshop will highlight research from 2018 using micro-CT data collected through the TrACEES platform including published work featured in the media this year:
- Developmental stages of the Tasmanian tiger: Newton et al. (2018); New York Times; ABC; Pursuit
- Australia’s first marine animal extinction of a Tasmanian seastar: O'Hara et al. (2018); The Conversation
The workshop will also host a forum for discussion of micro-CT applications, data management and analysis.
