CT-Scanner optimized for
acquisition speed and soft tissue contrast in small animals
(collaboration CPPM, IBDML).
CPPM develops a small animal X-ray CT-scanner based on ultra fast
hybrid pixels in collaboration with the Divelopmental Biology Institute of
This scanner will be installed on the observation platform of IBDML.
This project relates to the scope of the French Group of Research (GDR)
Modeling and Instrumentation for Biomedical Imaging (MI2B) of the IN2P3/CNRS
and the DAPNIA/CEA. The imaging pixel device of this scanner is developed
within the XPIX framework. CPPM is involved with the development and production
of the device, and IBDML with the optimisation and validation of the scanner
for the study of developmental abnormalities of transgenic mice.
A similar pixel detector will be manufactured to be inserted in a small
animal PET scanner for hybrid X-gamma imaging.
