Micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) uses X-Rays in which the source is rotated around the object. Depending upon the density of the object or tissue the X-Ray is attenuated at different rates. The 2D image can be used to generate a 3D virtual model of an object. The applications of micro-CT are diverse, and range from morphological studies of biological tissues to evaluation of porosity in coal cores.
