The SkyScan 1173 is a high energy micro-CT scanner for large and dense objects with spiral scan possibility. It includes a 130kV microfocus X-ray source with improved stability of the focal spot position, a large format (>5Mp) flat panel sensor with special protection by a lead-glass fiber-optic window for achieving a long lifetime under high energy X-rays, and a precision object manipulator for large (up to 140mm in diameter, 200mm in length) and heavy (several kilograms) objects with an integrated micro-positioning stage.
