There is no need to be deflated by your imaging data. We can help.

With custom-tailored image analysis, there are infinite possibilities to visualize, process, quantify, and analyze your preclinical research and clinical trial images. It all starts with the right imaging protocol backed by the industry’s best imaging and technology experts. Let us help you generate the best possible imaging data, reduce your costs and accelerate your time to market.

This Thanksgiving we looked at just one news-worthy aspect of the Thanksgiving tradition of watching American football games: how much difference does a deflated football really make?


  Mean Indentation (mm) Max Indentation (mm) Indentation Volume (cm3/td)
Pressure 1 0.411 6.8 1.185
Pressure 2 1.212 8.8 4.694
Pressure 3 2.416 10.4 8.494

3D surface scans of a regulation football were acquired using an infrared laser scanning system (FARO Arm). The football was imaged fully inflated (brown surface in movie) and then deflated to 3 lower psi levels (gray surface is at lowest psi). A coin was placed under constant force (simulating a "finger") and the surface indentation was measured around the coin at each deflation level. The pseudo-colored map in the movie provides a visual representation of the indentation distances around the coin at the lowest psi in comparison to the fully inflated surface (blue = 0 mm; red/orange = 10.4 mm). Key: td = total distance

Happy Thanksgiving!
