Experimental timeline for bleomycin-induced lung mouse fibrosis. Sixty C57Bl/6 female were randomly assigned to receive either saline or bleomycin (dose) and were double instilled intratracheally on day 0 and 4. Lungs were harvested in 5 animals per group for histological analysis at 7, 14 and 21 days after the first treatment. Parallel groups of 5 animals for each treatment arm were imaged with micro-CT at the same time-points and the lungs harvested soon after the scanning to assess the correlation between micro-CT with histological data
