Description

While 2D x-ray CT is now commonly used for NDT applications, the interest in 3D x-ray cone beam tomography has significantly increased over the last few years [1,2]. The need to reduce acquisition time for industrial applications, or radiation dose to patients for medical applications, led engineers to develop a new type of tomograph using x-ray beams more efficiently. Thanks to a high spatial resolution, the 3D x-ray CT allows greater knowledge of the object structure. This understanding is necessary to study and improve industrial production of high technology materials. Therefore, 3D x-ray CT is well suited for the study of materials with structural anomalies, such as technical ceramics [2].
