The Center maintains state-of-the-art x-ray microcomputed tomography instrumentation, associated computational and visualization facilities, and significant technical expertise in a range of three-dimensional imaging and characterization areas. The Center's focus on 3D/4D monitoring of internal processes and characterization of 3D structure in natural and synthetic systems is reflected in the instrumentation available for research use. 


The Center for Quantitative Imaging is a multi-user research facility designed to serve the microCT imaging needs of the University and the broader scientific research community. The CQI focuses on two main areas of research - monitoring of internal processes in experimental systems and characterization of complex three-dimensional structure and material composition in natural and synthetic systems.
