【摘要】 We successfully obtained 3 D skeletal images of Hyla suweonensis, employing a nondestructive method by applying appropriate anesthesia and limiting the radiation dose. H. suweonensis is a tree frog endemic to Korea and is on the list of endangered species. Previous studies have employed caliper-based measurements and two-dimensional(2 D) X-ray imaging for anatomical analyses of the skeletal system or bone types of H. suweonensis. In this work we reconstructed three-dimensional(3 D) skeletal images of H. suweonensis, utilizing a nondestructive micro-computed tomography(micro-CT) with a short scan and low radiation dose(i.e. 4 min and 0.16 Gy). Importantly, our approach can be applied to the imaging of 3 D skeletal systems of other endangered frog species, allowing both versatile and high contrast images of anatomical structures without causing any significant damages to the living animal.
