Abstract: A method and apparatus for displaying a three-dimensional radiograph in a security scanner. A first X-ray image of an object is generated by the security scanner from a first viewpoint. A second X-ray image of the object is generated by the security scanner from a second viewpoint. The first X-ray image and the second X-ray image form a stereogram. The stereogram is displayed by the security scanner on a display system for the security scanner such that a first eye of a viewer sees the first X-ray image in the stereogram and a second eye of the viewer sees the second X-ray image in the stereogram. A parallax between the first viewpoint and the second viewpoint in the stereogram results in a three-dimensional visualization of the object on the display system for the security scanner.
