About Radiography Inspection

Radiography inspection utilises ionising radiation and radiosensitive film to locate flaws within components. The exposure to the radiation causes a latent image on the film, which requires development to become a visible permanent image. This method allows different types of materials to be tested with high degree of sensitivity, with advances in computerised radiography further improving this inspection.
