Digital Radiography (DR) / Computed Radiography (CR)
Acuren’s Digital Imaging Services Offer Numerous Benefits Over Conventional Film X-Ray Where Profile Radiography Is Utilized
Enjoy safer testing with Acuren’s Digital Radiography (DR) and Computed Radiography (CR) services. DR is a form of x-ray imaging where digital x-ray sensors (DDA) are used instead of traditional photographic film; CR uses a flexible phosphor Imaging Plate to capture digital images in place of photographic film. The resulting digital images can be emailed for additional analysis and enhanced to aid in interpretation of test results. Creating digital files also eliminates risks from exposure to silver-based film or chemicals. Acuren’s DR takes less energy to operate, resulting in smaller exclusion zones and the elimination of RT windows. In addition to being safer this also results in faster, more informed decision making, a clear understanding of next steps and significant cost savings.
The perfect solution for challenging inspection environments
Faster, Safer, Reduced Environmental Footprint and More Accurate Than Conventional X-Rays
You know instantly whether your image has been captured thus eliminating reshoots, no developing or processing time required, and no need for multiple shots for material of varying thickness. Since there is no film or imaging plates, film storage and chemical disposal costs are eliminated.
