Caption: Chrysanthemum, micro-CT scan, cross-section. This image was acquired using X-ray micro-Computed Tomography (also known as micro-CT). A micro-CT scanner projects a beam of X-rays through the sample onto a detector panel. Images are collected over a 360 rotation and these are then reconstructed to form a virtual 3D model of the specimen. This virtual object that can be viewed from all angles and sliced open or digitally dissected. The colours in the flowers are based on differences in the density of the tissue. Image by Dan Sykes.
