Value for industry • Computed tomography (CT) is an excellent means to measuring in vivo or carcass body composition on farm animals. • Every institute uses its own method for CT body composition measurement and comparisons between methods are complicated because of the lack of harmonised methods. • A harmonised method would be useful for every comparison between different institutes’ studies on body composition for genetics, animal breeding, carcass composition or for classification purposes. • The COST Action FAIM has worked towards a harmonized method by collaborating to evaluate CT measurement differences between different CTscanners/protocols in Europe.
