Case Studies / In-Service Computed Radiography

In-Service Computed Radiography


The UK based client had a requirement to perform In-service radiography as an alternative to conventional film radiography.

Forth Inspection Service was approached to develop the Computed Radiography (CR) procedure & perform comparative trials.


Several Computed radiography systems were trialed with specific focus on the following key areas;

• Portability & robustness of unit
• Usability of system
• Software features for image quality & analysis
• Cost

Numerous In-service corroded samples were initially radiographed using conventional film, followed by the various CR systems.

The final CR system was selected & Forth Inspection Service provided training on the system for the client’s radiographers.


Using a Computed Radiography system for In-Service inspection means that

• Reduced exposure time compared to film radiography
• Various software features to enhance digital image & subsequent analysis
• No need for darkroom facilities or processing chemicals
• Data transfer, results can be cut to DVD, USB or transmitted electronically
