Packer Qualtity Control Identificaion & Measurement of Voids/Inclusions
Packers preclude drilling blowouts, so failure of this component can cause a serious accident. Drill stem packers are tested non-destructively by CT to conform to homogeneity criteria set by the manufacturer. Postprocessing software groups of voxels outside density criteria, automatically rejecting the packer, if it fails the criteria.

Simple radiographs show relative contrast of materials. While indicating some qualitative contrast in density, radiographs do not provide a quantitative measurement of the distribution of contrast components. It is necessary to use CT for making voxel measurement of density-related values.
