The CT laboratory has a wide range of uses in the areas of teaching, science, and research across departments and scientific fields.
The laboratory has a Siemens Somatom Scope Power CT system, which is a 16 slice multi-detector device with a powerful PC and software.
The tomograph is not only for experimental use, but there are well-known applications helping to carry out research as part of final theses.
A specific use is found in the display of specimens/cadavers of vertebrates of various sizes from duck to deer. However, CT is capable of imaging any object of a biological nature – antlers, the root system of plants, the structure of wood and its products, or individual organs, e.g. hearts. It is also possible to use it for forensic purposes in the field of terminal ballistics either directly on shot game or ballistic gel, thus evaluating the effects of a bullet.
