Computed Tomography (CT) has irrevocably altered the landscape of NDT. By harnessing X-ray technology and sophisticated algorithms, CT enables the visualisation of internal structures with unprecedented clarity and detail. Whether it's scrutinising the integrity of aerospace components or assessing the quality of automotive parts, NDT CT stands for precision and reliability.

History of the Computed Tomography

The inception of computed tomography marks a pivotal moment in the history of medical imaging and non-destructive testing. It all began in the early 1970s, when two pioneers, Sir Godfrey Hounsfield, and Dr. Allan Cormack, independently laid down the mathematical foundations that would revolutionise diagnostic imaging.
