Industrial Tomography: Systems and Applications, Second Edition thoroughly explores the important techniques of industrial tomography, also discusses image reconstruction, systems, and applications. This book 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. This book is suitable for materials scientists and engineers and applied physicists working in the photonics and optoelectronics industry or in the applications industries.

Key Features

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


This book is suitable for materials scientists and engineers and applied physicists working in the photonics and optoelectronics industry or in the applications industries.
