Technology for sport: demonstration of CT scans for crack detection in arrow and bow for archery

In this example, a cracked arrow and cracked bow were scanned as a demonstration of this technology for archery. The idea is that used equipment can be scanned to confirm the lack of internal cracks or defects. This improves the performance of the sports equipment and in the case of archery will result in less accidents. These images are thanks to an Olympic archery coach
