Caption: High resolution X-ray computed tomography (CT) scanner, University of Texas, Austin, USA. This scanner is used by scientists studying rocks, fossils and biological specimens. It is capable of seeing fine structure in samples that range in size from only a few millimetres in diameter up to 50 centimetres. The scanner fires hundreds of beams of X-rays at the sample at all angles to create virtual slices. These slices are then rendered into a 3-D model. The scanner is surrounded by a radiation resistant enclosure (left half of image). An operator controls the scanner (centre right of image).
