Tomographic Imaging Software

Tomographic velocity images are powerful analysis tools used to characterize the size, shape, extent, and severity of potential defects and anomalies.

Tomographic Imaging Software (TOMO) is most commonly used in conjunction with the Crosshole Sonic Logging, Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity, and Crosshole Seismic/Downhole Seismic methods.

This type of testing/processing is often deployed to illuminate the extent, location, and severity of a defect found with previous testing. This methodology can, however, be used in instances when the user requires a 2-D/3-D velocity image of the medium in question (e.g. soil body velocity structures).

NOTE: Tomographic software can be used with any Windows computer.
