2D (planar) x-ray imaging enables rapid imaging of bone changes in vivo or ex vivo. This technology can be applied to the detection and progression of bone metastasis. Planar x-ray also allows for evaluation of joint changes and bone degradation in rheumatoid arthritis and visualization of medical devices at a throughput not possible with other technologies.
In just seconds, this imaging technology can capture and visualize a planar image. This high throughput can also be used for skeletal phenotype screening in transgenic mouse models.
