Abstract : An interactive multimedia presentation has been developed for viewing on a Macintosh workstation that summarizes the results of the 'Advanced Development of X-ray Computed Tomography Applications' demonstration (CTAD) program. The Interactive Multimedia Presentation for Applied Computed Tomography (IMPACT) package includes the following areas: (1) Conclusions and Recommendations, (2) X-Ray Computed Tomography, (3) CT Application Stories, (4) Interactive Imaging Program and (5) For More Information. The 'Advanced Development of X-ray Computed Tomography Applications' demonstration (CTAD) program, sponsored by Wright Laboratory, generated significant amounts of data and conclusions on the application of X-ray computed tomography (CT) to aircraft structures, materials and components. Over 18 formal technical reports have been written for WL publication. The approach for summarizing the data has been to create a presentation package for use on a Macintosh computer containing the major conclusions of the CTAD program with a number of specific examples. The package can be used by an individual to review information or can be used by a presenter to an audience with an LCD screen and overhead projector. The interactive multimedia allows the users to move through the material at their pace, entering deeper levels of detail as desired. The presentation contains the summary conclusions of the CTAD program, background material on basic X-Ray CT, examples of the applications of computed tomography that were demonstrated in the CTAD program, an image processing program for demonstrating CT image analysis, and references for more information. The CD presentation package is available from Wright Laboratory. (MM)
