CT AND THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND IT
Under the CT Technology tab, we will display informative information concerning all of the technology and how it came into play. We will discuss the development and current best practices. As you know, "CT produces data that can be manipulated in order to demonstrate various [material] structures based on their ability to absorb the X-ray beam. Although, historically [in a medical setting,] the images generated were in the axial or transverse plane, perpendicular to the long axis of the [human] body, modern scanners allow this volume of data to be reformatted in various planes or even as volumetric (3D) representations of structures." Nondestructive testing or NDT CT generally uses the part rotation method to help lower costs and take advantage of highly accurate positioning such is used with CNC machining instead of rotating the gantry. "Another example is archaeological uses such as imaging the contents of sarcophagi or ceramics. Individuals responsible for performing CT exams are called radiographers or radiologic technologists."
