Description

Traditionally, real-time x-ray inspection systems have used standard video camera technology in conjunction with an image intensifier or phosphor screen [1]. Less often, image processing and image analysis capabilities are provided in expensive, turnkey systems. Such systems typically allow for real-time contrast modification, frame shift, smoothing, and edge sharpening. Previously, we have shown that these types of techniques can be implemented using commercially available low-cost image processing hardware that uses arithmetic logic units, hardware multipliers, and a pipelined data flow [2].
