10 detailed experiments with x-rays and computed tomography.
Function and Applications
Comprehensive collection of reference experiments concerning the
fundamental principles and use of X-rays and computed tomography in
physics, medicine, and material science with the XR 4.0 X-ray
unit platform and the XRCT 4.0 Computertomogrphy upgtrade set as a
pool of ideas concerning the potential areas of application in
demonstration and laboratory experiments. A clear matrix simplifies
the orientation in terms of scientific fields and topics.
What you can learn about
- Fundamental principles
The detailed and target-group-specific experiment descriptions and
instructions cover the following topics, among others:
reconstruction of 3D images from two-dimensional images, effects of
filters, cause of artefacts, and limits of the method.
In order to prepare students of medicine optimally for their
professional practice, standard samples with different core themes
are offered. E.g. use of the Hounsfield scale, diagnostics with the
aid of computed tomography is supported.
- Materials science/engineering
Computed tomography is widely used in engineering and materials
science applications, in particular in the field of non-destructive
Equipment and Technical Data
- Experiment descriptions with clearly structured learning
objectives, fundamental principles, photo of the set-up, equipment
list, tasks, illustrated instructions concerning the set-up and
procedure, theory and evaluation with example results plus
important notes concerning the operation and safety of the
equipment. This simplifies the orientation and execution as well as
the selection of the experiment parts for personalised laboratory
experiments. The information provided is so comprehensive that no
other background information is required.
- For every experiment, the software package "XRCT 4.0
measure CT" includes presettings for the easy and direct
execution of the experiment at the push of a button as well as
numerous example measurements.
- Experiment matrix for quick orientation
- DIN A4 format, spiral-bound, colour print, 130 pages
