The "Centre for X-ray Tomography" of the Ghent University (UGCT) is an interdisciplinary research facility which performs research on the X-ray micro/nanotomography technique and its applications in a scientific context. UGCT is presently an interfacultary collaboration between three UGent research groups:

The facility has developed and built several modular micro- and nanoCT scanners, uses in-house developed reconstruction reconstruction and 3D analysis software and is the origin of two spin-off companies (Inside Matters and X-Ray Engineering)

UGCT provides services for universities and research institutes in the context of joint research projects (both long-term and short-term). For more information, please contact us.

Doctoral Schools course


With approximately 30 participants, the Doctoral Schools course on High-Resolution X-ray Tomography was a success!

The UGCT team would like to thank all participants and also the guest speakers F. Marone (TOMCAT, PSI) and P. Veikkolainen and H. Vartiainen (Pohjankonna Oy) for their well-appreciated talk!





This video shows the process and result of high-resolution X-ray CT scanning of a rare butterfly. The scan is performed at the HECTOR scanner of UGCT.
