The use of micro-computed tomography for the elucidation of three-dimensional microstructure of leather is described. Layers of leather, fiber bundles with their branches and inner structure are detectable. For the fine-fibered and dense-structured grain layer techniques with higher resolution are required, such as SEM. Problems encountered in image analysis with respect to automated segmentation are discussed and alternative solutions are presented.
