The world-wide explosion of commercial microComputed Tomography (microCT) system emplacement has led to dayin, day-out access to laboratory scanners. Most biologically-oriented microCT facilities must characterize large numbers of samples rapidly at moderate spatial resolution (e.g., 10-20 μm isotropic volume elements, voxels). Scanning multiple specimens simultaneously is one efficient solution. Sample positioning is critical if the region of interest of each specimen is to be imaged without increasing the number of slices recorded (i.e., data acquisition and reconstruction times). Three very different, multiple sample data acquisitions are reported: mouse heart tissue calcification, rat spinal fusion and mouse tibial bone cancer models
