With the Radiography Test (RT), which is one of the Non-Destructive Technique (NDT), defects or discontinuities in the internal structure of materials can be determined. For this purpose, materials to be examined are exposed to radiation such as x-rays and gamma rays and an image is obtained either on the film or the digital converter panel behind the material. (Figure 1)


Radiography is widely used in manufacturing, aviation, and naval industries for material testing. There are three X-ray devices, one of which is portable, in the Radiography Laboratory (RL). In addition, tests can be performed with a high activity gamma source.
