Radiography-an overview

As the name itself suggests, radiography is an advanced imaging technology that employs X- rays, gamma rays or other radio-waves to view the internal structure of any object. Hence it is known as the radio-imaging technique and is commonly applied to several useful purposes in the field of medicine as well as in the non-medicinal sectors. Radiography or radiological imaging technology refers to complete process wherein specific amount of radiation or radio waves are put to expose the object or the structure under study to create a two-dimensional image of the same. The radio waves passing through the object are nicely captured by the photographic film or the digital detector. This method of obtaining flat images on a projector film or photographic plate is widely used for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes as well as in different industries.

Depending upon the usage the process of radiography is classified as diagnostic radiography and industrial radiography. Both the processes are based on the same scientific technology and require particular set of skills for better application and accurate results.

Industrial radiography and uses

Radiography is a great imaging technology that provides accurate results in a short span of time without disturbing the outer framework of the object. This method is quite helpful for different sectors in a number of ways.

Since Industrial radiography is a method of non-destructing testing in which ionizing radiation such as X-rays is used to get the picture of the internal structure of any object, it helps in locating the defects and issues inside the complex structural components. Hence, it plays a pivotal role in ensuring the quality and reliability of the goods and services. Radiography is widely used in an array of movable as well as immovable structures in food quality inspection, luggage screening devices at airports, non-intrusive cargo checking, welding or casting parts inspection etc.

Industrial radiography is successfully used for EOD (explosive ordnance disposal) and IED (improvised explosive device) analytical processes, maintenance of aircrafts, and in defence equipment inspection too. Interestingly, radiology or radiographical data is used in the classification of components used in sorting and recycling of biotic and abiotic compounds.

Diagnostic radiology and need for overall safety

Radiography or the radio-imaging technology can be very well applied to serve the therapeutic purposes as well in various hospitals and health care centres. Following the scientific system of radio-imaging, comprehensive two-dimensional images through ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Computed Tomography or fluoroscopy etc. are obtained when parts of human body when exposed to ionising radiation. These images can be used not just to study the human anatomy but also can be used to look for chronic defects inside the complex tissues. Although we all are already aware of how radiation is helpful in the treatment of cancer yet the idea to put radiation to for getting a nice idea about the root cause of the problem without physically disturbing the body is no less fascinating and equally helpful. The experts in the field of radiography greatly rely on the radiation imaging technology but they also emphasize the need for quality assurance in diagnostic radiology to keep radiation risks at bay.

Quality Assurance in Diagnostic Radiology- an indispensable factor in health care

Exposure to ionising radiation can be fatal. Medical care-givers, patients, radiologists and radiographers are prone to hazardous effects of radiation in the absence of proper quality assurance from certified experts. We cannot escape radiation yet the damaging repercussions can be certainly curbed down with adequate preventive measures per the safety rules and regulations.

Health experts and scientists across continents are urging people to opt for quality assurance especially in the field of diagnostic radiology as it is the most effective remedy to stay safe from getting ionising radiation exposure. We provide quality assurance services that strives to keep the radiation dose as low as reasonably possible. Here it should be noted that quality assurance is pretty different from quality control.

Quality assurance excels over quality control as it is directly associated with the well-being of not just the patients and visitors but also for the radiologists and medical staff attending them. In short it is a complete process that involves all processes to control, improve, manage and extend the best imaging and radiation therapy and subsequent performance.

We offer cent percent trustworthy services for Quality Assurance keeping well in mind the guidelines set by the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board for the following diagnostic tools: –

  • Congruence of radiation and optical fields

  • Central Beam Alignment

  • Effective Focal Spot Size Measurement

  • Accuracy of Accelerating Tube Potential
