Abstract
Synchrotron radiation based X-ray microtomography was applied for the morphometric analysis of polyurethane scaffolds (polymer foams) intended for the use as a biocompatible replacement material. The X-ray microtomography apparatus used for this study is described in detail. The full data evaluation process including X-ray image recording, tomographic reconstruction and the subsequent data reduction steps is explained. The 3-dim. segmentation of the scaffolds and the results of the morphometric analysis are presented.
