X-ray CT scan
X-ray computed tomography, also computed tomography (CT scan), is a medical imaging procedure that uses computer-processed X-rays to produce tomographic images or 'slices' of specific areas of the body. These cross-sectional images are used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes in various medical disciplines.
Digital geometry processing is used to generate a three-dimensional image of the inside of an object from a large series of two-dimensional X-ray images taken around a single axis of rotation.
Kersten Europe delivers bent aluminium profiles for the ring of the tunnel. This extrusion profile is bent, cut to size and undergoes surface treatments/aging if required.
The latest generation of advanced bending machines allows Kersten to bend the profiles with the required precision. There are very low tollerances and the parts need to fit together seamlessly.
