Paper Abstract

The mechanical properties of bone are directly linked to its trabecular structure. A computed microtomography (CMT) system allowing high resolution three-dimensional imaging of bone samples is reported. The CMT technique benefits from the outstanding properties of synchrotron radiation (i.e. energy tunability, monochromaticity, high photon flux). The detector is based on a two-dimensional digital CCD camera coupled to a fluorescent screen through light optics. A spatial resolution of 9 micrometers (55 line pairs/mm) at 10% contrast was obtained. CMT, which is a non-destructive imaging technique, seems promising for the investigation of bone trabecular structure.
