Emission and transmission gamma-ray computed tomography

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We are adapting emission and transmission computed tomography of gamma rays for nondestructive analysis of the special nuclear materials (SNM) uranium and plutonium in small, dense heterogeneous samples of the type stored throughout the DOE complex. The transmission method, widely used in medicine for diagnostics, is extended by also using the gamma rays emitted by the sample itself to measure a 3-D distribution of SNM, and to quantify it in heterogeneous samples such as Pu buttons from the molten-salt extraction process.
