NDE Non-Destructive Evaluation

It's Christmas Eve and everybody's presents are arranged around the tree. You simply need to know if you finally got the present that you have been waiting for, for years. You can't go downstairs and open it because it is nearly impossible to re-wrap it in the same fashion as Santa.

What's a Kid to do?

In a moment of brilliance you remember that Papa has a Cat Scanner (Computed Axial Tomography) in his shop! Down the stairs, swoop by the tree, grab the present and out to the Shop. A quick acquisition of a thousand 2mm slices, 30 seconds of processing and -- oh mygosh -- there it is!

This is Non-Destructive Evaluation: Looking in the box without opening. . .
