This guide is for tutorial purposes only and to outline the general principles of radioscopic imaging.
This guide describes practices and image quality measuring systems for real-time, and near real-time, nonfilm detection, display, and recording of radioscopic images. These images, used in materials examination, are generated by penetrating radiation passing through the subject material and producing an image on the detecting medium. Although the described radiation sources are specifically X-ray and gammaray, the general concepts can be used for other radiation sources such as neutrons. The image detection and display techniques are nonfilm, but the use of photographic film as a means for permanent recording of the image is not precluded. NOTE 1-For information purposes, refer to Terminology E1316.
This guide summarizes the state of radioscopic technology prior to the advent of Digital Detector Arrays (DDAs), which may also be used for radioscopic imaging. For a summary of DDAs, see E2736, Standard Guide for Digital Detector Array Radiology. It should be noted that some detector configurations listed herein have similar foundations to those described in Guide E2736.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific safety precautionary statements, see Section 6.
