CT Scanning For Failure Analysis
CT Scanning To Evaluate Evidence For Accurate Causation Determination
Many people associate a computerized tomography (CT) scan with the doctor’s office, allowing practioners to render 3-dimensional images and x-rays from inside the human body.
But, did you know a CT machine can be an extremely valuable tool when an insurance claim or litigation involves a product or device failure?
It’s true, and we are the only area forensic engineering firm that has one!
Our Industrial X-Ray CT Scanner Helps Examine Critical Evidence
In circumstances where there is a “failure” – a structure, machine, vehicle, device – every single piece of evidence matters.
Often – particularly when there is extensive damage at the site of the failure – handling, dissecting, and examining evidence retrieved from a scene needs to be done with the utmost care. Some items retrieved may be difficult to inspect because of their construction or assemblage. Evidence may be encased in resolidified melted plastic. Still other times, evidence may be so damaged, a deeper probe is nearly impossible.
Non-destructive testing becomes a welcomed reality with a CT Scanner. This advanced technology allows FFA to expediently produce three-dimensional visualizations and x-ray images of evidence.
Even in the most complex cases, the circumstances of a claim and an accurate determination of the failure come into clear focus!
Our scans are performed by an IAAI-certified forensic technician, ensuring we maintain an expert and compliant command of scanner preparation and evidence scanning procedures.
