This "Frontiers in Plant Science Research Topic" is a compilation of seven key publications in the field of the application of X-ray computed tomography (CT) scanning in plant sciences, as well as an editorial. A CT scanner can scan a living plant to obtain a 3-D digital model and thus analyze the spatial organization of branches, leaf canopy and root system.
