Caption

Tope Shark foetus (Galeorhinus galeus), micro-CT scan. This image was acquired using X-ray micro-Computed Tomography (also known as micro-CT). A micro-CT scanner projects a beam of X-rays through the sample onto a detector panel. Images are collected over a 360° rotation and these are then reconstructed to form a virtual 3D model of the specimen. This virtual object that can be viewed from all angles and sliced open or digitally dissected. This specimen was stained with iodine to provide contrast in the soft tissue, allowing internal features to be visualised. Image by Rebecca Summerfield.
