Since 1980, NCI has been a leader and innovator in x-ray imaging and Computed Tomography (CT) research and deployment. The CT scanners we have built span a wide range of specimen size and x-ray energy as depicted in the first graphic at right. Most of our scanners have 2D radiography and full-3D capabilities that couple with NCI-developed software for acquisition, analysis, and display. We specialize in multi-energy and mono-energetic CT imaging to obtain material properties. Our team has access to synchrotron beamlines at the Berkeley and Argonne labs for CT purposes. In addition to x-ray tomography, we have performed CT imaging with emitted gammas, protons, electromagnetic (radar) and ultrasound modalities.
