Thermo Scientific HeliScan Mk2 Features
From Thermo Scientific:
The most versatile micro computed-tomography (microCT) solution for quantitative analysis.
HeliScan™ pioneers a new generation of microCT technology for a variety of research applications: unique helical scanning and iterative reconstruction technology produce unsurpassed image fidelity and deliver the highest signal to noise ratio compared to traditional circular scanning technology.
The unique benefits of Heliscan include:
Capture high-fidelity images from tall samples by using a single continuous scan to completely eliminate artifacts common to multi-scan stitching methods
Detect the contours of your sample in the initial scan using a novel auto envelope workflow technique. No other microCT system features such a capability.
Prevent well-known motion deformation from taking effect with an advanced artifacts correction technique to flatten the helical trajectory.
