High energy 2D and CT imaging is typically done above traditional 225kV levels. Depending on the product to be inspected, 450kV and multi-MEV x-ray sources are often used. The limitation of using higher energy sources is typically resolution. Whereas micro-CT imaging produces scan resolution in the 2-100 micron range, 450kV systems produces scan resolution in the .2 to 1mm range. Typical products for high-energy CT scanning are automotive castings such as engine blocks and transmission housings as well as many turbine engine blades.
