Paul Showgun, a radiologist at Walter Reed Medical Center and Tatjana Fischer from the NIH discuss using image scanning such as CT scanners to analyze and minimize the threat from IED blasts. The technology can be used to determine blast trajectories and other ballistic properties of the IED impacts. This information has multiple usages including the development of better body armor to reduce blast damage to Counter IED and generating patterns that can be instramental in tracking down specific terrorist groups.
