Non-destructive inspection carried out by using nuclear resonances excited by an MeV energy region gamma ray is a promising method. The high penetrability of MeV gamma ray of nuclear resonant energy makes possible the detection of nuclides surrounded by massive materials. As an application of this method, computed tomography imaging of nuclear distribution inside objects can be reconstructed from transmission factor of gamma rays. We have studied the image reconstruction of the nuclear distribution using Monte-Carlo simulations to estimate the gamma-ray transmission factor assuming the ELI-NP facility where about 3 order higher intensity of quasi-monoenergetic gamma rays will be available.
