ESi's Visualization Technologists provide carefully considered solutions to your data collection needs with the latest in cutting-edge technology. By working with us early on, our clients benefit from precision data collection and the critical insights they reveal. As these insights often inform potential outcomes, quality data collection and preservation should be the early priorities of any legal team.

Accurate data is central to any investigation of merit.

CT Scanning

ESi’s sophisticated Computed Tomography services, or CT, can be an invaluable tool in forensic analysis. CT imaging is non-destructive and provides high quality 3D images of an object and its internal structures. These images can be viewed from any angle, graphically deconstructed and reconstructed, layer by layer. This versatile technology can be employed to help clients with a wide range of data visualization and reconstruction needs.

A CT scan can be used to create an accurate, permanent, and complete record of a scanned object. This avoids many of the costs and complications associated with data gathering and evidence spoliation. 

With a CT scan, you can preserve the features of objects for access even after testing has been performed. Because the scan data is digital, it can be readily distributed to multiple parties for analysis. This reduces the likelihood of travel, transportation, scheduling, and chain of custody issues.

CT images often provide critical information about the cause of a failure or valuable insights to help guide further inquiry. CT animations can elevate the way technical concepts are communicated to an audience. This is done by visually "walking" them through the object deconstruction and showing them the internal structures and likely failure modes.

Powerful Visualization, Deconstruction, Reconstruction, and Geometric Dimensioning

CT technology is virtually unmatched when it comes to visualization, deconstruction, reconstruction, and geometric dimensioning. Common uses include mechanical and electrical system assemblies. Applications are also common in the transportation, aerospace, energy, construction, manufacturing, and medical device industries.

If a 2D view of an object is needed, our team can provide a high-quality x-ray from any angle. Our CT scanner displays a real-time x-ray view of the object as it is being positioned. This helps ensure the capture of the optimal image for the intended purpose.
