Ultra-fast 4D imaging in the synchrotron has limited availability, expensive running costs and proposal-based access, which makes it unavailable for many researchers and engineers. Recent technology developments have resulted in a revolution in the field of micro-CT, bringing fast 4D imaging to the lab.
Check out this article that appeared in the November issue of Microscopy & Analysis, “Dynamic Micro-CT: Nondestructive Imaging in the Fourth Dimension”. It offers insight to the latest technique, known as dynamic micro-CT, and provides applications examples in the areas of predicting and simulating the mechanical properties of metal foams as well as studying the disintegration process of pharmaceutical tablets and capsules.
