Radiographic Testing (RT) is a non-destructive testing (NDT) method that uses either x-rays or gamma rays to examine the internal structure of manufactured components identifying any flaws or defects.
In the radiography test, the test part is placed between the radiation source and the film (or detector). The material density and thickness differences of the test part attenuate (i.e. reduce) the penetrating radiation through interaction processes that include scattering and/or absorption. The differences in absorption are then recorded on film(s) or electronically.
Various imaging methods are available in industrial radiography, techniques for displaying the final image; i.e. Film radiography, real-time radiography (RTR), computed tomography (CT), digital radiography (DR) and computed radiography (CR).
