A method of non-destructive inspection in which the object being inspected is exposed to a beam of X-rays or gamma rays and the resulting shadow image of the object is recorded on film or is displayed on a viewing screen or television monitor. Internal defects are then detected due to differences in absorption.
using radiation sources to "photograph" internal structures, such as turbine blades in jet engines. A sealed radiation source, usually iridium-192 or cobalt-60, beams gamma rays at the object to be checked. Gamma rays passing through flaws in the metal or incomplete welds strike special photographic film (radiographic film) on the opposite side. The process is very similar to taking an x-ray to check for broken bones. [ Click "BackButton" for previous location
An x-ray record of certain internal structures of the body.
A method of non-destructive testing. Internal examination of a metallic structure or component is carried out by exposing it to a beam of X-Ray or gamma radiation. Internal defects can be seen on a screen or recorded on film.
techniques for imaging internal structures; e.g. MRI, CAT, x-rays.
The art or act of making radiographs or pictures produced on a sensitive surface or film (X-rays ) by a form of radiation other than light.
The treatment of disease (especially cancer) by exposure to radiation.
Examination of any part of the body for diagnostic purposes by means of roentgen rays, recording the image on a sensitized surface (such as photographic film).
the process of making a radiograph; producing an image on a radiosensitive surface by radiation other than visible light
photography that uses other kinds of radiation than visible light
medical: the use of radiant energy (such as x-rays and gamma rays) to image body systems. 2) industrial: the use of radioactive sources to photograph internal structures, such as turbine blades in jet engines. A sealed radiation source, usually iridium-192 (Ir-192) or cobalt-60 (Co-60), beams gamma rays at the object to be checked. Gamma rays passing through flaws in the metal or incomplete welds strike special photographic film (radiographic film) on the opposite side.
The diagnostic imaging techniques (including plain-film chest radiographs and computerized tomography) that rely on degrees of X-radiation transmission related to differences in tissue densities.
Photographic film or plate depicting images of internal body parts. X-ray.
The production of x-ray films.
The formation of images of the inside of the body using radiation projected through the body and onto film; a radiograph is also called an X-ray.
producing an image by radiation other than visible light, e.g., x-rays of one's teeth is done by radiography.
the making of shadow images on photographic film by the action of ionizing radiation.
Taking of X-rays.
The production of permanent visual image using penetrating radiation through the material tested.
The production of shadow images on photographic plates through the action of high-energy ionizing radiation.
Examination of the structure of materials by nondestructive methods, using a radioactive source or a radiation generating device.
A method of viewing the respiratory system by using radiation to transmit an image of the respiratory system to film. A chest radiograph is taken to view the respiratory system of a person who is being evaluated for pulmonary TB Abnormalities (e.g., lesions or cavities in the lungs and enlarged lymph nodes) may indicate the presence of TB
The use of X rays or gamma rays to vievv the internal structures of the body.
Production of images through use of radioactive materials, used in medicine, industry, etc.
The process of passing radiation through a weld joint or base material to obtain a film record of its soundness.
Photography that uses radiation other than visible light.
Examination of any part of the body through the use of x rays. The process produces an image of shadows and contrasts on film.
technique of using X-rays, gamma rays and charged particles to form shadow images on photographic materials. Used in medical and industrial research because of its ability to penetrate opaque objects.
Radiography is the use of certain types of electromagnetic radiationâ€”usually ionizingâ€”to view objects. The use of non-ionizing radiations (visible light and ultraviolet light) to view objects is best viewed as a normal â€œopticalâ€ method (e.g., light microscope).
