Radiography (X-ray) is one of the most important, versatile and widely accepted of all the non-destructive examination methods.

Radiography is based on the ability of X-rays to pass through metal and other materials opaque to ordinary light, and produce photographic records of the transmitted radiant energy. All materials will absorb known amounts of this radiant energy and, therefore, X-rays can be used to show discontinuities and inclusions within the opaque material. The permanent film record of the internal conditions will show the basic information by which weld soundness and be determined.
