Title: Metrology in CT Imaging

Abstract: The advancement of 3D printing and additive technologies has led to growing demand for new measurement strategies. In order to meet the new challenges in the manufacturing industry, industrial CT has become a critical tool for inspections requiring metrological rigor.

Here we will explore the basics of metrology by CT and a discussion of the major factors that influence the metrological performance. Furthermore, we will discuss the challenges that arise when using a CT system for Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerance (GD&T) projects and present the technical solutions that are necessary to make CT measurements accurate and precise

Brief Bio on the Speaker: Dana Begun is an applications engineer at Waygate Technologies specializing in CT and X-ray imaging. She holds a dual Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in Biomedical Engineering and Anthropology. Following a post-doctoral fellowship at the Mayo Clinic, she joined the Waygate applications team in 2018. She has 13 years of experience with radiographic technology.
