Abstract

We present a three-dimensional computer reconstruction of a plaice (Pleuronectes platessa) otolith from data acquired by the Diamond Light synchrotron, beamline I12, X-ray source, a high energy (53 – 150 keV) source particularly well suited to the study of dense objects. Our data allowed non-destructive rendering of otolith structure, and for the first time allows examination of otolith annuli (internal ring structures) to be analysed in X-ray tomographic images.
