List of projects related to: contrast-enhanced microCT
|Advanced Characterization of the 3D Morphology of the Bone-Tendon Interface and the Relationship to the Functional Properties|
Researcher: Arne Maes
Supervisor(s): Greet Kerckhofs
Within my research project I aim to develop insights in the morphology and the structure-function relationships of the bone-tendon interface. To this end, contrast-enhanced microCT (CE-CT) will be applied for advanced structural characterization. A better understanding of this complex biological tissue is believed to greatly improve the probability of success of regenerative strategies aiming to treat injuries of the bone-tendon interface.
