New peer-reviewed article: Microstructural analysis of P3D Scaffolds using X-ray microcomputed tomography

In a recent study, microCT was utilized as a mean to investigate the microstructural parameters of beta-tricalcium phosphate-based bone scaffolds, the P3D Scaffolds, from Ossiform. Here, high and low resolution microCT was used to quantitatively evaluate the 3D-printed, bone-mimicking constructs in terms of surface area, construct volume, number of pores, pore size and distribution, wall thickness, delamination, internal porosity, and internal structure. In addition to establishing these parameters in Ossiform’s P3D Scaffolds, this article underlines the value of microCT as a tool in quality management of bioceramic implants.
