Industrial radiography is the practice of using X-ray and gamma radiation to “see” defects or irregularities inside solid materials without requiring that the objects be removed, disassembled, or otherwise compromised for ongoing use should they pass inspection. The practice is becoming more widespread worldwide for its advantages both in terms of its economic benefits and versatility. Outlay for equipment for industrial radiography is significantly less, without compromising quality, than with other methods. In addition, this practice falls in the category of non-destructive testing. In other words, the materials may be thoroughly examined inside and out for fractures, weld quality, stress injury, or other issues without loss of integrity either in the items or in the findings.

I recently came across an article that was off the beaten path as far as radiation detection instrument subjects go. The article, by Paul Frame, is called “The Nick Names of the Early Survey Meters,” (http://www.orau.org/ptp/collection/surveymeters/nicknamessurveymeters.htm) and it introduces us to some of the different and unusual names that some of the early survey meters were given and the reasons why. The following is an excerpt from that article:
I have worked for Ludlum Measurements for about three years as a technical writer, editing and writing manuals and procedures for Engineering. As part of the Engineering department, I have had the opportunity to learn about the radiation detection industry from some brilliant minds.
Emergency responders will be responsible for rescuing and delivering care to victims of a radiation emergency at or near the incident site. To help emergency responders remain safe Ludlum Measurements has radiation detection instruments.
The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA®) is an international society of radiologists, medical physicists and other medical professionals with more than 50,000 members across the globe. RSNA hosts the largest medical meeting in the world, drawing 60,000 attendees annually to McCormick Place in Chicago, and publishes two top peer-reviewed journals: Radiology, the highest-impact scientific journal in the field, and RadioGraphics, the only journal dedicated to continuing education in radiology.
Our customers consists of Medical Physicists, Technologists, and Biomedical Service Technologists. These are the people who use our equipment on a daily basis. RSNA is an ideal setting to meet with them and introduce them to our latest and greatest products.
RSNA 2012 will be the third year in a row that Ludlum Medical Physics is attending as an exhibitor and we are excited to present our new booth setup with an actual demonstration of our popular Model 375P-336. This is an excellent surface contamination screening tool for:
