We use the intense light coming from a third generation synchrotron source to perform computed tomography (CT) with micro-resolution and high material contrast. This unique tool allows for shedding light on methodical errors which are involved when applying classical histomorphometry. The tomographic approach using X-rays is not only non-destructive, it also allows for an analysis in a true 3D manner. Thus, it delivers knowledge of which is important to fully understand e. g. bone regeneration.
