[Histonet] Cartilage in CT-scans

From:"Vera Weisbecker"

Hello All,

This is not stricly a histology question - but I was wondering whether anyone has experience with showing tissues other than bone in CT-scans? I am trying to visualize cartilage in micro-CT scans of formalin-fixed alcohol-preserved small young mammals. While cartilage doesn't show up "by itself", I wonder whether there is any staining agent the animals could be treated with to increase density of the cartilage. Any ideas?

Thank you very much,
