This work presents recent advancements in X-ray micro-computed tomography (XRMCT) of self-healing materials at Ghent University's Centre for X-ray Tomography (UGCT). Results of XRMCT imaging in a self-healing polymer system are shown to demonstrate the use of XRMCT in self-healing studies. Furthermore, two new XRMCT scanners are presented. The HECTOR scanner was designed for large samples and strongly attenuating samples, and is therefore well suited to study self-healing concrete. The EMCT scanner is well suited for dynamic self-healing experiments in a controlled environment.
