Author(s): R. Gholipour Peyvandi, S. Z. Islami Rad, M. Ghanadi Maragheh, A. Anari, A. R. Jalilian.


A 3D industrial CT system was designed on the base of single-source – single-detector. The CT system hardware consists of 3 motors, a data acquisition system, a computer unit, a gamma source and a radiation detector. In this patent, phantom has 3dimensional rotation capability using motors in the direction (R,,Z). R & Z motors were shifted with 0.01° step and the motor had 360° rotation potential with 0.04° step and more. The acquired 2D & 3D images showed high resolutions.

Keywords: Industrial CT, design and development, 2D, &, 3D images, 3 dimensional rotation, single-source, –, single-detector, Computed tomography, noninvasive imaging, Tomographic imaging, linear attenuation coefficient, nondestructive testing, high resolution images, 3D gamma ray CT system
