Toshiba Medical CT Scanner

The facilities at the COIFPM include two Toshiba Aquilion medical CT scanners. These CT scanners are one-of-a-kind systems designed for both vertical as well as horizontal scanning of long samples. The scanners incorporate a custom-built, two-story vertical positioning system (VPS), designed by Universal Systems, that allows meter long samples to be positioned vertically during helical scanning. Each system is also integrated with a high pressure and temperature, multi-phase fluid injection system to allow fluids to be introduced to the samples during scans. The systems can be used with custom chemical resistant sample holders made of X-ray transparent material that can withstand up to 10,000 psi pressures.
