Real-Time Radiography Course Booklet
Real-time radiography is an advanced nondestructive
evaluation technique that is gaining wide use in industry. The
method uses a standard X-ray system with the addition of an
image intensifier or other detector to examine components in
real time rather than with film. This allows components to be
moved and rotated during the inspection, which results in better
inspection coverage at higher inspection speeds. Since the inspection
technique requires the specialized equipment such as the image
intensifier and sample manipulation system, special knowledge
and training is required.
The Real-Time Radiography Booklet was developed by the Collaboration
for NDT Education to teach NDT students about real-time radiography.
Much of the information has been incorporated into this Internet
site. However, if it is desirable to have the information packaged
together, the the booklet can be downloaded here at no cost.
