A peek inside art objects: New algorithm makes CT scan more accessible

An X-ray scanner, some small metal balls, and a newly developed algorithm. That is all you need to make a 3D model that enables you to look inside art objects without dismantling them. Thanks to the research of Francien Bossema (Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica and Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science), museums can now use existing X-ray equipment as CT scanners, without having to buy such a costly and complicated device.
