1.0 SCOPE
This document presides over the use of Arrays 2905 laser film
digitization.Hardware and software criterion are clearly defined and specified
in order to standardize and maintain good quality control of digitized
radiographic image.This document only covers on the process procedure to
digitize conventional radiograph films.Hence, this document does not
include any guidance or specifications with regard to the evaluation of the
digitized images for acceptance or rejection to any criteria pertaining to flaw
sizing, defect recognition or any other structural integrity evaluation of the
subject or part imaged.NOTE: Other systems that exhibit equivalent
capabilities enlisted in this document may be used upon consent from a
Malaysia Nuclear Agency personnel who is qualified, and certified in the film
digitization process.
2.0 PROCEDURE GUIDELINES FORTHE DIGITIZATION OF RADIOGRAPHS
This procedure provides guidelines to fully perform digitization radiograph
process in accordance to industrial standard.
3.0 PURPOSE
The aim of this procedure is to clarify the essential items required for
preparing, handling, digitizing and storing industrial radiographs. This
procedure shall also define quality control standards that will allow for
uniformity of data integrity and image quality. This is done in an effort to
allow for the digitization of existing radiographs for subsequent
interpretation and long term storage.
