Three dimensional models are built up using [[electromagnetism|electromagnetic]] or acoustic [[wave]]s (such as [[x-ray]]s, [[gamma ray]]s, [[ultrasound]] or [[seismology|seismic]] waves) and processed in a [[computer]] to produce cross-sections in any desired orientation. The [[image]]s produced by tomography are known as ''tomograms''. |+|

|−|In [[medicine]], x-rays may be used to image a human body by moving it through a rotating, high-speed, [[toroid]]al scanning unit. The thousands of slices are combined in a computer, this technique is known as ''computerized axial tomography'' and the machine is known as a C. A. T scanner and the images thus produced known as tomcatograms |+|
