Three‐dimensional investigation of volcanic textures by X‐ray microtomography and implications for conduit processes
[1] Synchrotron X-ray computed microtomography (μCT) was applied for the first time to clasts of pumice and scoria generated by active, explosive volcanoes characterized by a range of eruptive stylesExpand

Computed micro-tomographic evaluation of glide path with nickel-titanium rotary PathFile in maxillary first molars curved canals.
INTRODUCTION X-ray computed micro-tomography scanning allows high-resolution 3-dimensional imaging of small objects. In this study, micro-CT scanning was used to compare the ability of manual andExpand

Vesiculation in magmas from Stromboli and implications for normal Strombolian activity and paroxysmal explosions in basaltic systems
[1] We performed a series of X-ray tomographic experiments and lattice Boltzmann permeability simulations on pyroclastic products from explosive activity at Stromboli between December 2004 and MayExpand

PITRE: software for phase-sensitive X-ray image processing and tomography reconstruction.
PITRE supports phase retrieval for propagation-based phase-contrast imaging/tomography (PPCI/PPCT), extracts apparent absorption, refractive and scattering information of diffraction enhanced imaging (DEI), and allows parallel-beam tomography reconstruction. Expand

Large vesicles record pathways of degassing at basaltic volcanoes
Volcanic degassing is directly linked to magma dynamics and controls the style of eruptive activity. To better understand how gas is transported within basaltic magma we perform a 3D investigation ofExpand

Pore3D: A software library for quantitative analysis of porous media
In recent years great interest has been posed in imaging techniques like X-ray computed microtomography which in a nondestructive way produce three-dimensional (3D) images of the internal structureExpand

An introduction to the application of X-ray microtomography to the three-dimensional study of igneous rocks
Imaging rocks in three-dimensions through X-ray microtomography enables routine visualization of structures in samples, which can be spatially resolved down to the sub-micron scale. Although X-rayExpand

The origin of squamates revealed by a Middle Triassic lizard from the Italian Alps
Modern squamates (lizards, snakes and amphisbaenians) are the world’s most diverse group of tetrapods along with birds1 and have a long evolutionary history, with the oldest known fossils dating fromExpand

A four-dimensional X-ray tomographic microscopy study of bubble growth in basaltic foam.
Understanding the influence of bubble foams on magma permeability and strength is critical to investigations of volcanic eruption mechanisms. Increasing foam porosity decreases strength, enhancingExpand

Controlled release of a highly hydrophilic API from lipid microspheres obtained by prilling: analysis of drug and water diffusion processes with X-ray-based methods.
This study deals with the development of an oral controlled-release dosage form of a highly water-soluble antiepileptic drug. In this respect, drug-loaded spheroid particles close to 380 μm inExpand
