Industrial CT (computerized tomography) uses a series of 2-dimensional images
taken at specific intervals around the entire sample. Basically any type of industrial
CT system uses three principal components: an X-ray tube, an X-ray detector, and a
rotational stage. Everything is enclosed within a radiation shielding steel/lead/steel
cabinet that typically ranges between four and 10 feet cubed. This allows use of the
system in a public environment without any additional safety concerns.
