CAT scanning and terra cotta

From: Barbara Appelbaum <aandh<-a>

I have a problem concerning the examination of an archaeological
terra cotta.  I am looking into the possibility of having it
CAT-scanned, but don't know whether normal X-rays (if that is what
is used) would penetrate up to about 12 inches of terra cotta.  I
would appreciate hearing from someone with experience that would
shed light on this.
