    Real Time X-ray (RTX)

    Real time x-ray is a non-destructive technique of conducting X-Ray imaging of a test subject while it is in motion or in operation. X-Rays are transmitted through the test object and the shape, density and dimensional characteristics of the internals are imaged, using appropriate shading. An RTX system typically comprises an X-ray source, X-ray image intensifier and X-Ray detector connected to a capture computer with processing software. In some critical applications dual energy imaging, involving detection of high and low energy X -rays is utilized, to detect hard and soft objects. Airline baggage security inspection by RTX is an example where dual energy X-Ray imaging is utilized.

    RTX systems have been used in wide ranging applications, including quality assurance of electronic circuit boards, prototype evaluation of machinery, security inspection of goods, non-destructive inspection and failure analysis of machinery, process and quality control in automated fabrication lines, development of rocket engines.
