Dual Energy Computed Tomography (DECT)
By acquiring X-ray CT data at two different energy levels and using the DECT tools, one can calculate density and effective atomic number for the sample on a voxel-by-voxel basis.
A characterized materials image that can be considered a rock-typed image is created based on a list of reference materials.
technology adds value to whole-core CT analysis workflows, by providing
the user with actual density information that can be compared with
density logs and used for further characterization of rock formations.
This enables the user to compare whole-core
CT images across multiple formations and wells.
