Computed tomography, measurement, artifacts, metrology.


Paper deals with medical and industrial tomography and describes they development, utilization and their basic functions and design principles. During sensing of object (patient) may occur artifacts caused by scanning object (body movement, implants, beam hardening). The paper describe the most frequently artifacts and compare the parameters of medical and industrial CT machines.
