XXL computed tomography: a new dimension in X-ray analysis

Research News Special Issue / 15.5.2018

Researchers at the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft have achieved decisive progress in computed tomography. For the first time, it is now possible to analyze even very large objects with X-ray technology. XXL computed tomography produces high-resolution, high-contrast images in 3D. The technology enables, for example, the analysis of electric cars after a crash test. Historical relics can also be examined – and even a dinosaur skull.
