Principles, History, and Status of Dual-Energy Computerized Tomographic Explosives Detection



A brief account is given of the principles of dual-energy computerized tomography (DECT) and of the potential which DECT has demonstrated for the automated detection of commercial and military explosives concealed in suitcases or packages. A description of a breadboard system configured for this purpose is provided and recent advances in the state of the art in CT are discussed in the light of their potential significance for explosives detection.
