Additional Information:

No formal qualification required although a good understanding of Radiographic principles is desirable.

Computerised Radiography (CR)
A type of digital radiography that uses photostimulate phosphors (PSPs) to capture a latent image on the imaging plate.

Digital Radiography (DR)
It is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film.

There are various types of digital image capture devices including flat panel detectors (FPDs).

Computed Tomography (CT)
Computed Tomography (CT) is a powerful non-destructive evaluation (NDE) technique for producing 2-D and 3-D cross-sectional images of an object from flat X-ray images. Characteristics of the internal structure of an object such as dimensions, shape, internal defects, and density are readily available from CT images.
