Description

Radiographic inspection, where access is limited to one side of the part, can be performed by the use of backscatter imaging techniques. Compton scattering is the primary source of the backscattered signal strength with some contribution from x-ray fluorescence. A variety of approaches have been used in both medicine and industry to create the images [1–25]. The flying spot technique which uses a collimated beam of x-rays, and a large area detector has been used in the work reported here. The backscatter imaging is particular useful in the inspection of low-density, composite materials.

One Sided Radiographic Inspection Using Backscatter Imaging
