Computed Tomography Pro software

Physics - Atomic and nuclear physics - X-ray apparatus

For calculation of CT scans with the computed tomography module (554 821) or the X-ray image sensor (554 8281 or 554 828) and the X-ray apparatus (554 801 or 554 811USB).

The X-ray apparatus is controlled in selectable angular steps to capture the X-ray images. During the capture, the back-projection process is selectively visualised in two or three dimensions. There are already sectional views and 3D images of the unfinished 3D object with all viewing tools (rotate, zoom, transparency effects, cuts, stereoscopic display, illumination similar to the Heidelberg ray tracing model) available. With each additional step, the back-projection process advances to completion of the finished 3D object.

Despite the low X-ray energy of 35 keV for a school X-ray apparatus, good resolution CT scans of different objects can be captured and also be analysed qualitatively and quantitatively. The focus is on the educational preparation of the capturing process and on analysis.

A license for this software, limited to the computed tomography module (554 821), is already included there.
