Significantly stronger radiation is required to illuminate the film compared to doctors and dentists
The testing method is basically the same as that used by dentists and doctors. The big difference is that significant radiation is required to illuminate the film, which entails high safety requirements. It takes well-trained and experienced technicians to perform this type of testing safely and evaluate the X-ray film for defects and voids.
- Works on all materials
- The result (the movie) can be saved
- Radiation that requires containment
- Requires access to both sides of the test object
- May be limited by the shape of the test object
