After receiving their new Raspberry Pi 4 mini PC which launched last month Reddit user xCP23x has published some fantastic Raspberry Pi 4 x-ray images using a Nikon XT H 225 ST: 225kV 225W X-ray source available from his place of work.
“I work for a company that makes microfocus X-ray/CT systems!” xCP23x explained in their Reddit post. “Most of the images are from a 225kV system (good down to 3 microns). I got my Pi in the post yesterday morning and I was desperately waiting until the end of the workday to get home and play with it! Took a few quick radiographs before I left because I had to.”
