Abstract Submission Open for ToScA North America!

UTCT and the Jackson School of Geosciences will be hosting the first North American ToScA (Tomography for Scientific Advancement) Symposium June 6-8, 2017. With one day of hands-on software workshops, two days of talks, a poster session, image competition, and even a bat-viewing dinner cruise on Lady Bird Lake, you won't want to miss it!

The University of Texas High-Resolution X-ray Computed Tomography Facility

The High-Resolution X-ray Computed Tomography Facility at The University of Texas at Austin (UTCT) is a national shared multi-user facility supported by the Instrumentation and Facilities Program of NSF’s Earth Sciences (EAR) directorate. UTCT offers scientific researchers across the earth, biological and engineering sciences access to a completely nondestructive technique for visualizing features in the interior of opaque solid objects, and for obtaining digital information on their 3D geometries and properties.
