(Morning) Hands-on introduction to the CCPi Core Imaging Library (CIL)

Morning Session
The Core Imaging Library (CIL) is an open-source Python framework for tomographic imaging with particular emphasis on the reconstruction of challenging datasets. This includes highly noisy, incomplete, non-standard and multi-channel data such as in dynamic, spectral and in situ tomography, where reconstruction by filtered back-projection tends to work poorly.
CIL provides state-of-the-art iterative reconstruction algorithms, pre-processing and visualization tools as well as readers for some of the common micro-CT data formats. CIL is developed by the Collaborative Computational Project in Tomographic Imaging (CCPi) and is available from https://www.ccpi.ac.uk/cil.

In this three-hour hands-on training course you will
- get an overview of CIL and how to get started,
- learn to load in and process micro-CT data (e.g. Nikon and Zeiss),
- produce and display your very own reconstructions using CIL,
- appreciate the pros and cons of iterative reconstruction when compared to filtered back-projection,
- experiment with different iterative reconstruction algorithms.

(Morning) Fast-Scanning, Large Sample X-ray micro CT with the Bruker SKYSCAN 1273

Morning Session
Please join us for an informative, interactive workshop introducing Bruker’s SKYSCAN 1273 benchtop, large sample X-ray CT scanner. Topics to be covered include;

- Introduction to the SKYSCAN 1273
- Dr. James Carr, BlueScientifc X-ray CT Applications Specialist

- Showcase Presentations from SKYSCAN users
- Including Dr. Lisa-Marie Shillito, Director of Archaeology Labs, Newcastle University

- Live demonstration on a variety of samples

- Open Q & A session

The SKYSCAN 1273 offers fast scanning of relatively large and heavy samples, combined with the ease of use and low maintenance of a benchtop, closed X-ray source system. Samples up to 20kg and 500mm long x 300mm in diameter can be accommodated, with a scanning volume of up to 250mm x 250 mm. In the continuous scanning mode scans can be completed in as little as < 20 seconds.

If you are interested in joining our workshop, please compete the registration details at the link below. You are also invited to comment in advance on particular samples / materials of interest and we will endeavour to cover those topics during the workshop.

(Morning) VGSTUDIO MAX Workshop

Morning Session
This workshop will show you the basics of using VGSTUDIO MAX to analyze and visualize CT data. We will present typical workflows that are of special interest for the scientific community for the fast and accurate analysis of voxel data. After that, you will complete the first steps in quantitative analysis, segmentation, and visualization techniques in the software. Use VGSTUDIO MAX to easily acquire information contained in your data sets, whether obtained by laboratory X-ray CT, a synchrotron, with neutrons, or with another source. In addition, you will be introduced to our latest module, "Digital Volume Correlation" (DVC). This analysis allows you to measure the displacement and strains in time series of volumetric images and quickly identify specific materials by comparing scans acquired from different sources (e.g., neutron and X-ray CT). Use this special opportunity to speak with Volume Graphics experts!
