Figure 1: Description of specimen use. Each specimen began with a complete chinchilla skull, which was used for MRI imaging. Due to the size limitation of samples in the Micro-CT machine, chinchilla skulls were halved to accommodate CT imaging. Once imaging was completed, samples were further pared down to about one quarter of their original size for histology processing. Histology cassettes and molds limited the size of the sample.
