MicroCT instruments allow high resolution 3D visualization of different plant parts and organs, from roots and tubers to fruit and seeds.

Such advanced imaging and 3D reconstruction are of great value in the study of microscopic structural characteristics, such as embryo development in the seed and its integrity under pest or disease influence, texture changes in a fruit due to biotic or abiotic stresses, root growth and architecture under normal and drought conditions, plant morphology and more.

Longitudinal studies of water transport through the plant transport system are applicable, too.
