INS National Workshop on Industrial Digital Radiography and Tomography


Modern nuclear, chemical, petrochemical, automobile and an array of manufacturing industries depend heavily on radioisotopes and radiation technologies for defect visualization, quality control and assurance. As a consequence, there has been manifold growth in the applications of established radiation based conventional nondestructive testing & evaluation (NDT&E) techniques, specifically gamma and X-ray radiography for quality assurance and improved productivity. However, this has also led to an increased demand on consumables like films and chemicals and an increased burden of toxic disposables. Despite the inherent benefits of the conventional radiation based NDE techniques; the low throughput, increased radiation exposures and associated difficulties in maintaining archives of high volumes of exposed films, the industry has long felt the need of suitable alternatives. Nuclear radiation based electronic imaging technologies have come a long way and filmless radiography and computed tomography are fast becoming adaptable alternatives to conventional radiation based NDE techniques for meeting industrial requirements.

The preceding years of rapid development has seen a phenomenal growth in the interest in film-less radiography and especially the direct digital methods, which provide excellent image quality,
archival and manageability of huge data. Select industry sectors in the advanced countries have already initiated programmes to introduce regular digital radiography (DR) and computed
tomography (CT) facilities in their NDE laboratories. At present the country appears self-sufficient in training and certification programmes as also trained personnel in conventional radiography testing at different levels but similar to most of the developing countries in the Asia-pacific region, there is a dearth of trained manpower in the country who can fully understand the DR and CT technologies in their entirety. This gap at different levels needs to be bridged as the consistent technological transition requires willingness, an inclination to adapt the technology to the specific user needs and competence for sustenance. In addition to these, automation of advanced NDE systems and processes and amalgamation of the benefits of selected advanced NDE techniques are the other important issues which require immediate attention in Indian perspective. In the present transition phase from the film-based RT techniques to computed radiography, digital radiography and tomography, knowledge sharing becomes an essential paradigm for deciding adaptability and acceptance of newer radiation based industrial imaging techniques.

The INS workshop is designed to impart a brief but in-depth knowledge on the benefits and limitations of conventional radiography, science and technologies of electronic imaging, computed radiography (CR), DR and CT using gamma and X-rays as newer NDT tools for the benefit of the participants.

Who should attend:

The target audience is students, researchers, NDT professionals, service providers, scientists, academicians, design and manufacturing engineers, welding and corrosion inspectors and maintenance personnel, QA and NDE managers and personnel in engineering, process, aerospace, automobile industries, inspection and regulatory authorities who can enrich themselves through this
workshop. In addition to these, qualified engineers and technical personnel engaged in radiography practices industrial partners and entrepreneurs desirous of taking up radiation-based RT as a business venture fresh graduate and post graduate engineers looking for a career in NDTNDT practioners from the industry-sector will also benefit by attending the workshop.

Programme Benefits:
The five-day programme may cover lectures, tutorials and case-studies in conventional Gamma-ray and X-ray based Radiography, its advantages and limitations, fundamentals of electronic imaging, computed radiography, digital radiography and introduction to industrial computed tomography and their benefits. Current industry trends will also be discussed. The technical content of the workshop has been finalized in such a way that the audience from across different streams will be able to comprehend the subject in a graded fashion.

• Aerospace Industries
• Military and Defence
• Offshore Industries
• Marine Industries
• Petrochemical Industries
• Waste Management
• Automotive Industries
• Manufacturing Industries

    - An UNTRAINED worker was engaged by a company to use Radiography Camera having 30 Ci of Ir-192 Source.
    - The person was neither radiographer nor trainee, so no knowledge of radiation safety.
    - NO TLD badges / NO SURVEY METER / NO POCKET DOSIMETER was given to the worker.
    - The pigtail along with the radioactive source was decoupled in the guide tube.
    - The worker noticed it only when he removed guide tube for storage of the camera.
    - He picked up the source by hand and put it back to the camera.
    - Photograph of his right hand is attached for your information.

    - Never engage unqualified workers to handle radiation sources/devices.
    - Even do not allow 'Trainee Radiographer' without supervision of qualified worker.
    - Always after each exposure ensure that the source is inside the camera by using a survey meter.
    - Digital pocket dosimeter with beep alarm is very useful during radiography.
    - Follow all radiation safety procedures during radiography.
