The use of computed tomography to investigate the structure of Larger Benthic Foraminifera is presented. Several steps are required to obtain sharp and usable images with MicroCT machines. These steps are explained in detail along with select insights on larger foraminifera. This technique, which delivers three dimensional models, gives the operator the possibility to measure nearly every possible morphometric parameter on either a two- and three-dimensional basis.
