Software Suite for Reconstruction, Analysis & Visualization

NRecon: the world's fastest large format reconstruction, supporting beam-hardening and misalignment correction, ring artifact elimination, and drift compensation
DataViewer: displays reconstructed results, which can be rotated and resampled, as a slice-by-slice movie or as three orthogonal sections
CTAn: builds 3D models from micro-CT scans and measures comprehensive 2D and 3D morphometric parameters, plus density
CTVox: volume rendering program displays reconstructed slices as a realistic 3D object with a clipping tool to produce cut-away views and controls to adjust colors and transparency
CTVol: surface rendering program provides a virtual 3D viewing environment, with a wide range of options for 3D presentation of micro-CT results
