X-ray computed tomography (CT) is a technique primarily used in medical applications that uses X-ray images to reconstruct the internal microstructure of objects. This is considered to be a non-destructive and non-invasive technique for 3D imaging of any materials. Using X-rays, a series of radiographs of a sample are recorded from various angles, and then used to reconstruct the internal 3D microstructure by means of a suitable reconstruction algorithm. The method has a high penetrating power and probing efficiency, and is unlimited by morphological complexity. This article summarizes the concept and applications of X-ray computed tomography in various fields of food processing.
