Fast tomographic inspection of cylindrical objects

This paper presents a method for improved analysis of objects with an axial symmetry using X-ray Computed Tomography (CT). Cylindrical coordinates about an axis fixed to the object form the most natural base to check certain characteristics of objects that contain such symmetry, as often occurs with industrial parts... The sampling grid corresponds with the object, allowing for down-sampling hence reducing the reconstruction time. This is necessary for in-line applications and fast quality inspection. With algebraic reconstruction it permits the use of a pre-computed initial volume perfectly suited to fit a series of scans where same-type objects can have different positions and orientations, as often encountered in an industrial setting. Weighted back-projection can also be included when some regions are more likely subject to change, to improve stability. Building on a Cartesian grid reconstruction code, the feasibility of reusing the existing ray-tracers is checked against other researches in the same field. read more
