Computed Radiography

Computed Radiography. No physical Radiographs, and gets a digital form of Radiographic images by using Care stream

Computed Radiography (CR) offers several significant advantages over traditional film-based radiography, making it a preferred choice in various industries:

  • Digital Imaging: CR uses a phosphor storage plate to capture X-ray images digitally. This digital format provides immediate access to high-resolution images, eliminating the need for chemical development and darkrooms.
  • Enhanced Image Manipulation: CR images are easily manipulated post- acquisition. Radiographers can adjust brightness, contrast, and zoom, improving defect visibility and aiding in accurate analysis.
  • Reusable Imaging Plates: CR imaging plates can be used repeatedly, reducing material waste and long-term costs compared to disposable film cassettes.
  • Efficient Data Management: Digital CR images are stored electronically, making them easy to archive, retrieve, and share. This facilitates remote analysis, quality control, and long-term record-keeping.
  • Reduced Exposure and Dose Control: CR allows for improved dose control and reduced radiation exposure to patients or components, while still maintaining image quality, a critical consideration in healthcare and industrial NDE.
  • Eco-Friendly: The elimination of chemical processing and reduced material waste makes CR an environmentally friendly option compared to film-based radiography.

These advantages make Computed Radiography a powerful tool in industries like healthcare, aerospace, and manufacturing where efficient and high-quality non-destructive evaluation is crucial.
