Abstract:

A new real-time stereo X-ray imaging system is described. Fast X-ray source movement TV field of 160 s is possible in a microfocus X-ray source by electromagnetic shifting of the electron beam. The two-view fields are combined in a TV frame for stereo viewing through a polarizing screen. Real-time, stereo X-ray images of moving inspection objects can be followed. One can view the stereo X-ray images to judge the apparent depth of an X-ray indication. One can also measure the depth of selected indications with a developed software system. This report describes the development of this novel stereo X-ray inspection system over the two year period of this SBIR, Phase II Project. Plans are being made to offer the stereo, depth measurement system commercially. JHD
