Paper Abstract

Let us suppose that a parallel beam of X-rays passes through an homogeneous fragment. The absorbing thickness along a ray is obtained by comparing the value of the optical density corresponding to this ray with the optical densities generated by a calibration step of the same material as the object. The integration of the thicknesses over the whole surface of the image of the object leads to the knowledge of the volume and mass of the fragment.
