This paper presents SimCT a simulation tool that is able to predict results of X-ray imaging techniques like radiography and computed tomography. Every modelling step from the generation of X-ray radiation to the finally acquired image is addressed by the tool and described in this paper. SimCT can support users of X-ray imaging devices, engineers of such devices and software developers during their daily work by predicting realistic or artefact free results. Additionally, this tool for numerical simulations can support the selection of optimised scan parameters for a specific task.
