Abstract

This article describes the recent progress in research and development on electrical capacitance tomography (ECT), electrical resistance tomography (ERT), and positron emission tomography (PET). Specifically, the article highlights several aspects of the three technologies and illustrates their application and performance through selected demonstration cases studies. The principles and results from the methods provide quantitative and/or qualitative assessment of the significance of each technique. The measurement techniques lend themselves for widespread application in multi-phase flow imaging research and some for industrial-scale measurements due to their non-invasive nature.
