3D Computed Tomography (CT) X-Ray

P17,400/sample (P13,900 student rate)

3D Computed Tomography (CT) is a non-destructive scanning technology that allows you to view and inspect the external and internal structures of an object in 3D space. Computed Tomography works by taking hundreds or thousands of 2D Digital Radiography projections around a 360-degree rotation of an object. Proprietary algorithms are then used to reconstruct the 2D projections into a 3D CT volume, which will allow you to view and slice the part at any angle.

    • Real-time viewing for parameter optimization
    • Fast: Generates Digital Radiography scan in minutes; Computer Tomography scan could be less than an hour
    • Can measure as low as 0.2 microns (resolution)
    • SubPiX capability
    • Particle analysis
    • Linear Measurement/ Measurements
    • CAD comparison
    • Material difference identification through density differences

Test Method

2D X-ray / Digital Radiography Scan

3D X-ray/ Computer Tomography Scan

Sample Requirements

Up to 80 cm diameter and 120 cm height

At most 150 kg

60 mm thickness steel

240 mm aluminum

No sample preparation needed (depends on sample specifications)

Test Limitations

For 2D X-ray / DR

Sample orientation: certain angles may visually negate the defect
material limitation (highly-densed materials, high and low dense material DR interactions)
sample thickness

For 3D X-ray/ CT

Sample orientation: flat top and bottom may induce artifact and less details
Material limitation (highly-densed materials, high and low dense material DR interactions: artifacts and rings)
Sample must remain motionless during scanning
