Industrial Radiography

Industrial manufacturers use a testing method called “radiography” to check for defects in metal parts and welds to ensure safety /durability in the products in a Non-Destructive manner. Testing on gas /oil pipelines in the field is called “open field radiography”. Industrial radiography uses either x-rays or gamma rays. X-ray radiography is used in a fixed location. Here, radiation is present only when these machines are turned on. Portable industrial radiography devices are smaller, and use radioactive source as a “sealed source” to provide gamma rays. There is an inbuilt shielding to protect workers from the radiation.

Diagnostic Radiology

Diagnostic Radiology is a group of various modalities of medical imaging by using X-rays. Information Related to RegulationsofRadiology Facilities:
Medical use of x-rays for diagnosis and treatment has proven to be immensely beneficial to the society at large. However, unsafe use of x-ray radiation has health risks associated with it and hence it is required that proper care is exercised throughout the life cycle of the equipment i.e. from manufacture, supply, installation, use, maintenance, servicing and ultimately decommissioning.
