International Symposium on Future Medical Imaging with Nanoscale Computer Tomography

The purpose of this International Symposium is to demonstrate the three-dimensional x-ray imaging capabilities, bringing a completely new dimension to 3D scans, and enabling a more detailed look into the 3D structure of biological tissues and tissue-material interfaces.
