Estimation of body composition in pigs using computer assisted tomography

Pig News and Information 13(4): 159N-162N
Estimation of body composition in pigs using computer assisted tomography
The use of computer assisted tomography (CAT) or computerized tomography (CT) in assessing body composition of live pigs is discussed. CT can be utilized for selection purposes by measuring meat percentage on boars instead of selection by traditional full-sib test. Greater potential of CT-scanning may be measuring changes in body composition of animals during performance testing, and during experiments.
