Software freely provided by Skyscan (NRecon, CTAn, DataViewer, and CTVox), was used to reconstruct, process the images and to get the final volume rendering images. Special thanks to the Bruker-microCT's people who kindly gave us fast and effective support. For their patience, effectiveness, for their constant improvements to the software and for implement new options we requested. But, especially, for their kind answers to our constant pounding of queries and suggestions. We are especially indebted and we like to express our recognition to: Alexander Sasov, Stephan Boons, Xuan Liu, Bart Pawels, Phil Salmon, Jeroen Hostens, and Vladimir Kharitonov.
