A paper studies a prospective method for receiving a digital image on results of radiation testing without intermediate data carriers. Advantages of flash-radiography were analyzed, namely high productivity, low cost, possibility of on-line multiangle monitoring of welded joint internal defects; absence of intermediate data carriers. Comparison of main methods of digital image receiving was carried out. New radiation testing technology based on small-size semi-conductor detectors, named X-ray mini technology, was proposed. 24 Ref., 4 Figures.
Keywords: non-destructive testing, flash-radiography, digital image, X-ray TV system, scintillator, solid-state detector, internal defects of welded joints, X-ray minitechnology
