An Innovative Application of Computed Tomography: The Next Dimension of Safety for Critical Infrastructure

Today, the power industry continues to provide safe uninterrupted service to its customers by diligently assessing critical infrastructure challenges. New York City, with a population of more than 8 million people, has been looking for the next dimension of safety for critical infrastructure. To this end, innovative inspection techniques are being developed for detailed diagnosis and to drive preventive maintenance going forward.
