Step by step microCT scan process

Here are some photos of a typical scan process, in photo steps:

Step 1: Load the sample in some low density mounting material – the sample is a concrete of undisclosed origin, and the project will not be discussed here

Step 2: load the sample into a rod or cylinder

Step 3: open the machine door

Step 4: load the mounted sample into the rotation stage of the machine

Step 5: Put in appropriate beam filter (that means a metal plate)

Step 6: Set up appropriate scan parameters (which might need some optimization per application)

Step 7: Start scanning

The next steps after scanning will be the focus of another day’s demo:

Step 8: Reconstruct the data

Step 9: Analyze the data – we use Volume Graphics

Step 10: Save the images, reports, raw data and copy to disk (we dont keep data here)

There is also a video on youtube:
