Working Principles

The working principle involves selective passage of X-rays through the object being imaged, which reveals its internal density variations. The acquired image data is analysed for extraction of internal structural information. The factors that determine the quality of X-ray images are the type of source (wavelength), the X-ray converter and the imaging medium. X-ray imaging technique is predominantly used in medical applications and has been utilized in several other applications including safety and quality inspection of agricultural produce. X-ray imaging systems have been used for extracting information like presence of cracks, insect infestation, and morphological and structural features of internal parts of the seeds. Soft X-rays generated at low voltage have relatively low penetration power, which makes them suitable for inspection and non-destructive testing purpose.
