Summary

Preliminary gamma-ray CT evaluations of a selection of engineering ceramic components have been made. A number of important features were revealed including voids, cracks, and other density anomalies. It has been demonstrated that gamma-ray CT could play a key role in the development of highly reliable engineering ceramics.
