Industrial Tomography: Systems and Applications thoroughly explores the important tomographic techniques of industrial tomography, also discussing image reconstruction, systems, and applications.

The text presents complex processes, including the way three-dimensional imaging is used to create multiple cross-sections, and how computer software helps monitor flows, filtering, mixing, drying processes, and chemical reactions inside vessels and pipelines.

Readers will find a comprehensive discussion on the ways tomography systems can be used to optimize the performance of a wide variety of industrial processes.

  • Provides a comprehensive discussion on the different formats of tomography
  • Includes an excellent overview of image reconstruction using a wide range of applications
  • Presents a comprehensive discussion of tomography systems and their application in a wide variety of industrial processes
