Abstract:

An industrial fluoroscope having a television camera optically trained on the area between the X-ray tube and the fluoroscope to provide pictorial information on the tube-test object spacing and the tube-fluoroscope spacing. The pictorial information is displayed on a television receiver remote from the X-ray room, hence safely away from the harmful X-rays. The televised information assists the human technician to remotely manipulate the test object and fluoroscope equipment without having to physically enter the X-ray room. A video recorder may be associated with the television receiver to provide a permanent record of the test object positioned in relation to the X-ray picture. Author
