Extra-large CT big enough to scan cars

Transmission issues, faulty alternators and failed catalytic converters are not the type of diagnoses radiologists are used to making; then again, mechanics aren’t used to putting cars through CT scanners, either.

For now, radiologists can stick to imaging people, but the super-sized CT scanner for cars has become a reality, thanks to the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits in Erlangen, Germany. Check out the link below from Wired for a quick glimpse at an image from the new scanner that’ll be used in automobile design and crash-testing.
