It is difficult to understand soil microstructure due to the complexity of the related soil processes. To better understand soils, morphological features should be investigated in greater details with the use of advanced technology. New developments and of their combination provide contribution for better evaluation of soil morphological properties and relationships between soil structure and water movement. In multiphase porous materials, qualitative and quantitative information can be collected non-invasively by these methods. With the computer-assisted and nondestructive advanced technology such as computer microtomography (μCT),  models which could give more reliable results have been used in the last years. In this regard, microCT isused to display 3D morphological properties of undisturbed soil samples in the greatest detail.  3D-printed structures of undisturbed soils are obtained with a resolution of 80 μm with this tecnique. Experiments showed that more successful results were obtained compared to 2D and/or direct observations and provide high quality images. The results indicated that new technologies would contribute to understanding the micro-heterogeneity of soils and its relation to soil-water dynamics. In this way, using a 3D for imaging of soil structure would be a good tool to develop soil hydraulic models. In this paper, we discussed use of advanced technology in soil structure diagnosis.
