Industrial Radiography Market by Imaging techniques

Film-Based Radiography

In film-based radiography, a film is exposed to radiations such as x-rays and gamma rays that are bombarded on the item being inspected. The development time of the image in this technique is longer compared with other techniques. However, the technology is better understood and known by people. The process control is simpler in comparison to other forms of radiography. Film-based radiography measures defects using a transparent base and an emulsion layer. Further film-based radiography is a volumetric testing method. The film used in it is lightweight, flexible, and suitable for various applications. All films such as spot films, laser films, video films, are direct exposure films are used with the transparent base and emulsion layer.

Digital Radiography

Digital radiography is the latest development, A digital image-capturing device is used in digital radiography instead of X-ray films. The image quality can be enhanced using computer processing. The image gets stored in a digital format; hence, a database can be maintained for future referrals. Digital radiography is used in various industries: petrochemicals & gas, power generation, manufacturing, aerospace, automotive & transportation, and others. The advantage of this technique is that the images can be made more precise at every stage. An ideal imaging system should develop a high-quality image with minimal radiation exposure, which can be achieved in digital radiography.
