You may contact Scientific Measurement Systems (SMS) for more
information. They sell industrial CT-Scanners (SmartScan) in different
variants (size, resolution etc.) for Reverse Engineering Applications.

For an introduction to the problem of volume reconstruction from planar
slices, you may have a look to the 3D Reconstruction Page:

We at BIBA have developed a software tool (CLI2STL), which automatically
reconstruct a triangulated volume boundary from a set of planar slices.
The underlying general algorithm should handle mostly all geometric
situations that can occure between a pair of slices.
The input data have to be CLI. The output data is STL.

Other general solutions I know are from Jean-Daniel Boissonat (INRIA,
France) and Gill Barequet (Tel-Aviv University, Israel).
