Radiation Imaging

Radiation imaging is used in a diverse range of disciplines, from medicine and agriculture to archaeology and homeland security. It can offer vital information on the structure or function of internal components of a mechanical object or the human body by providing two dimensional or 3-D images using penetrating radiation. Missouri S&T researchers are developing advanced radiation imaging technologies and applications with support from the federal Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the U.S. Department of Energy and private industry.
