Why is CT Scanning So Popular for 3D Scanning Services?
Computerized Tomography, better known as CT scanning, has been such a breakthrough for such a wide number of fields that its inventors were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. That’s not a typo, they actually won the Nobel Peace Prize for their contributions to both science and medicine.
CT scanners combine multiple 2D X-ray “slices” into a 3D model, and modern day 3D scanning services are used by doctors, engineers, researchers, and scientists.
The first CT scanners, developed by British engineer Godfrey Hounsfield and South African-born physicist Allan Cormack, took several hours just to take one single X-ray slice. Not only that, but it would then take days just to compile all that data into a single image. Fortunately for the scientists of today, the best CT scanners can now capture four slices o
