The Nikon CT is WA’s only Large Field-of-View, materials’ research dedicated CT, for non-destructive imaging of internal parts, using multiple axial scans to generate 2D cross-sectional information or 3-dimenional reconstructions. The X-ray CT has the typical mechanism for taking ‘slices’ which are then digitally reconstructed into 3-D volumes, with advanced tools for 3D visualisation and quantification available.
