X-ray computed tomographic imaging is gaining widespread application for nondestructive evaluation and characterization of advanced structural ceramic materials. Since the quality of the X-ray CT image depends on the convolution kernel used, it is important to choose an appropriate kernel for accurate measurement of parameters such as the density distribution and organic content in the specimen. This paper presents a description of microfocus 3-D X-ray tomographic imaging and shows the effect of kernels on the reconstructed images in making parameter measurement.
