Radiographic Interpretation (RI) Training
What is Radiographic Interpretation (RI)?
Radiographic Interpretation (RI) is a Non Destructive Testing (NDT) Method of interpreting radiographs from testing of materials, using X-ray or gamma ray in order to asses internal structures to reveal flaws or any other internal fabrication errors.
The purpose of radiographic interpretation is to properly assess indications produced on radiographic media during the process of evaluating weldments or adjacent base metal. Radiographic interpreters must be thoroughly familiar with all aspects of the process of radiography, as well as the welding and casting process.
Radiographic Interpretation (RI) Training Objectives:
The Radiographic Interpretation (RI) course provides formal training in the art and science of radiographic film interpretation, images of common discontinuities and “hands-on” film interpretation experiences for the student. Emphasis is placed on the evaluation of actual film and digital images of welds and castings.
At the completion of this course you will have reviewed the proper techniques, physics and procedures of basic image formation and darkroom protocol to properly evaluate radiographic images and techniques used in creation of radiographs (film or digital).
Qualified to review radiography films and evaluate results as per applicable codes, standards and specifications. Should be familiar with radiography interpretation technique and report the results.
