SR / SCAN
Explanation:
I think it means synchrotron radiation, which is rayonnement synchrotron in French, and they're using the English abbreviation (as of course they are for CT as well).

"SR : Synchrotron radiation Rayonnement synchrotron"

"Bone structure and mineralization demonstrated using synchrotron radiation computed tomography (SR-CT) in animal models: preliminary findings"
