1015 commercially available batteries were scanned using a X-ray computed tomography system. These scans were processed into a set of images that capture the major axes of the battery. For cylindrical cells, these are radial and axial views of the battery. For pouch and prismatic cells, these are x-y, x-z, and y-z views of the battery.
