Description

Computerized tomography (CT) is one of the most efficient tools for the nondestructive inspection of a material specimen. Depending on the nature of the application (e.g. in medicine, mechanics or geophysics) and of the particular requirements of the situation, different types of radiation (waves) may be used, thus giving different information about the material properties. For example in diagnostic medicine, x-ray transmission CT gives an attenuation map, which allows different tissues to be distinguished. In the case of x-rays, this type of wave passes through an entire material structure in an almost straight line.
