Methods - X-Ray Tomography

Computed tomography (CT) is an imaging technique that allows a computer-processed non-destructive screening of objects with x-rays. X-rays are absorbed very differently depending on the density of the individual components of the specimens. These differences in absorption are sensed by detectors as differences in brightness and converted into a virtual 3D image by a computer.  The μCT method is a further development of the computed tomography able to visualize small objects with a size between 0.5 mm and 50 mm non-destructively with high resolution.
