Abstract : X-ray microtomography (microCT) is a new and extremely powerful tool for 3D digitization and modelling. As a non-destructive technology, its biggest asset is to enable the visualization of the internal structure of any object, with a very high degree of precision. In the field of museography, microCT opens up new perspectives. More particularly used in archaeology and palaeontology, it makes it possible to carry out a three-dimensional analysis of the internal structures-composition, hidden objects, defects-and to model surfaces without a shaded zone. 3D tomography is a polyvalent tool and used for manifold applications: from scientific research and assistance in restoration and conservation to interactive presentations (expositions, popularization, pedagogy) and including the digital safeguard of cultural heritage. The fields of application are now opening up to palaeontology, entomology, Egyptology, and to earth and natural sciences.
