Abstract

X-ray computed tomography (CT) uses penetrating radiation measurements from many angles about an object to reconstruct cross sectional images of the object interior [1–2]. The images are two dimensional maps of the X-ray linear attenuation coefficient for small volume elements in the object defined by the effective X-ray beam size. The CT images provide quantitative measures of component feature dimensions and density as related to the linear X-ray attenuation of the material under study.
