Operating Procedures

The RECO1 Workstation is built in house by Nikon Metrology for specific use with x-ray computed tomography (CT) data reconstruction and analysis. It houses Nikon's CT Pro 3D software for reconstructing CT data generated by Nikon MicroCT scanners such as SMIF's "MICROCT1" in addition to Volume Graphic's VGStudioMAX 2.2 with Coordinate Measurement Module for analyzing the data there after. An installation of the open-sourced  ImageJ software is installed on RECO1 as well to meet the image processing needs of most research. Please contact SMIF staff if you would like to request 3rd party software be installed on RECO1 or RECO2 for research use involving high computational rendering.
