Paper Abstract

An X-ray microtomography (or micro-CT) is an instrument for high-resolution 3D reconstruction of objects internal microstructure without destruction or time consuming specimen preparation. By using modern technology in x-ray sources and detectors several micro-CT systems were created as a simply usable desktop instrument. First micro-CT system is a laboratory instrument, giving true spatial resolution over a ten million times more detailed (in the term of volume parts) than the medical CT-scanners. The instrument contains a sealed microfocus X-ray source, a cooled X-ray digital CCD-camera and a Dual Pentium computer for system control and 3D-reconstructions running under Windows NT.
