Abstract

Real-time X-ray inspection is replacing film radiography in more and more applications. The rapid feedback provided by such systems greatly enhances throughput, especially in the case of complex objects requiring multiple views for complete inspection. When these systems are combined with powerful computing techniques, rapid image capture and enhancement and storage is possible. The productivity of these techniques would be increased with the ability to predict the sensitivity of a particular inspection without having to set up the equipment. Computer modeling of the inspection procedures can provide such information.
