What is Industrial CT Scanning?
Industrial CT scanning is an x-ray method used to capture the external and internal details of an object in 3D space. Industrial CT scanning can be used on a variety of metals, materials, welds, bonds and sub-components of an object. Typical deliverables of an industrial CT scan are X, Y, Z slices of the object at specified intervals, as well an executable model of the object which can be sliced in any direction and the contrast histogram manipulated to highlight various materials.

What is Micro CT?
Micro CT is a term used in the CT scanning industry to identify Computed Tomography (CT) systems that have a resolution relevant to the micron scale length. This differentiates from a CT scan system that may have resolution on the order of 100s of microns or millimeters. A Nano CT system, similarly, has a resolution below about 1 micron.
