One of the first systems we constructed using our carbon nanotube X-ray source technology was a micro-CT system for small animal imaging. The system utilizes a single CNT based X-ray source. Due to the unique nature of CNT X-ray sources, the system is capable of instantaneous X-ray firing. This allows for simultaneous physiological gating to the cardiac and respiratory cycle of a free-breathing mouse. The system allows for high resolution imaging of severe mouse lung disease models. There are currently three of these systems in use; one at the UNC-CH Biomedical and Imaging Research Center, one on the first generation microbeam radiation therapy system for image guidance at UNC-CH, and one at the University of Iowa.
