Micro-CT scanning of brains of blast-exposed and control rats. Blast-exposed and control rats were transcardially perfused with the Brite Vu contrast agent at 48 h, 6 weeks and 13 months after blast exposure. Brains were scanned at a resolution of 7.5 µm using 0.3° rotational steps of view around 360° and three-dimensional reconstructions were prepared with Bruker’s NRecon software before visualization with Bruker’s CTVox 3D visualization software. Representative maximum intensity projection (MIP) images show dorsal view of volume-rendered brain vasculature from blast-exposed (ac) and control (df) rats. Arrow in b shows an apparently displaced basilar artery in this blast-exposed animal. Arrowhead in b indicates a focally hypoperfused region within the cerebellum. Scale bar, 2 mm
