A Simulation of a computed tomography scan before a real scan is a desirable feature for industrial use of the method. The main purpose of this research field is to determine optimal scan parameters for a specimen with predefined geometry and material. Optimal scan parameters allow to increase the contrast and the sharpness of features in acquired CT images and to reduce artifacts, which do not correspond to real features of the specimen. Furthermore, the knowledge of image acquisition and principles behind data generation is essential for the development and enhancement of methods or algorithms for CT.
