Over the past decade, micro-computed tomography (microCT) has made its way from a novel and rather scarce technology to a commonly used imaging method in many fields and is applied nowadays in the whole range from very specialized research and development applications to highly automated quality control applications. The obvious advantages of the technology are on the one hand the non-destructive imaging of an object in three dimensions and on the other hand the quantitative analysis of the image data.
However, beside these objective and rational reasons to use microCT, we think that the technology has also the potential to touch people on a personal level. Looking into objects without having to break them apart is an intriguing thing and somehow just “cool”. Most of you that already performed microCT measurements would probably agree that each scan of an object is rousing curiosity of how the object will look like inside.
Based on our enthusiasm for microCT, we created this blog to connect with others using this technology. We strongly belief that the need for high-resolution, three-dimensional imaging is still growing and that connecting to and sharing information with a community will be beneficial. We work to make this place the microCT meeting point. If you find it useful, make it even more interesting by posting your comments!
