Talking about Flat-Panel Detector's Resolution

When we look for the optimal flat-panel detector, it’s not all about the highest possible resolution. Christian Jeuschede explains why we still stick to 139 µm respectively 150 µm pixel pitch instead of 100 µm and what to have in mind when chosing the best fit for your applications.

The Role of Uncertainty of Measurement in CT

In a CT system, X-ray photons emitted from an X-ray tube will travel through the object and hit a detector. The detector senses the dose at each pixel of the detector area. This creates digital images while the object is rotated. The reconstruction software calculates virtual slices based on the dose at each location from different angles. The result is called a tomogram. Each pixel in the tomogram represents a density of material, a voxel.

Exploring Accuracy and Uncertainty in Computed Tomography

There is a range of terminology for CT system accuracy and uncertainty that should be understood when evaluating 3D scanning systems, this blog post illustrates some of those terms, such as Precision and Accuracy, Tolerance, Uncertainty of Measurement, Resolution, Error, and Suitability.

Inspection of Metal Additive Manufacturing

Starting out mainly as a prototyping technology Additive Manufacturing (AM) gained tremendous momentum for  use in industrial applications over the last 5 years. For highly demanding functional parts, laser beam powder bed fusion (LB-PBF) became the most dominant AM technology.
