The SkyScan1275 is specially designed for fast scanning using new advances in the technology of X-ray sources and efficient flat-panel detectors. Shortening the distance between source and detector and very fast camera readout opens the possibility for reducing scan time down to a few minutes without compromising image quality. Current developments in fast reconstruction accelerated by graphics cards give an additional gain in performance and speed.
Fast realistic visualization of results by volume rendering enables fabulous imaging of internal object’s microstructure with power to reveal all internal details by virtual cut or virtual flight around and inside the objects. Fast scanning with high quality results is crucial for scientific research and industrial applications such as quality control or production process monitoring. The SkyScan1275 provides a high level of automation. Simple push of a button on the front of the system starts an auto-sequence of a fast scan followed by reconstruction and volume rendering executed during scanning of the next sample.
- This highly automated micro-CT system allows pushbutton operation with a preselected sequence of actions including scanning, reconstruction and volume rendering
