Digital radiography (DR) is a specialized imaging process used in the field of Nondestructive Testing (NDT). Instead of using film, digital radiography uses Digital Detector Arrays (DDA) that immediately record data during examination. This information is directly transferred to a computer system and can be seen simultaneously by multiple technicians. Participating in a digital radiography course will allow you to develop expertise as an industrial radiographer, and will equip you to implement digital technologies into your inspection program.
Carestream NDT and the American Institute of Nondestructive Testing (AINDT) now offer the “Advanced Industrial Radiographic Training Academy” to advance training in digital radiography and provide companies with the education required to transition smoothly from film radiography to a digital radiography platform. This program provides specialized digital radiography training programs to meet the needs of industrial radiographers.

How Digital Radiography Works
Digital radiography uses flat panel detectors, commonly known as Digital Detector Arrays (DDA). These flat detectors complete a direct or indirect conversion process to transform X-ray or gamma ray radiation to an electronic signal. The electric charge is then interpreted by thin, transistor sensors into digital information.
While the initial costs for direct digital radiography technology is expensive, the images produced have an excellent resolution and the seamless process leads to greater efficiency and cost savings. Recorded images can be immediately viewed, modified, deleted or shared with colleagues.
Applications of digital radiography include:
- Aerospace device inspection
- Identification of Corrosion Under Insulation in the petroleum and electricity industries
- Welding and casting inspection
- Detection of flow accelerated corrosion
- Composite and fiber component inspection
- Identification of foreign objects
We offer the most convenient and affordable digital radiography training available.

Enhancing Digital Radiography Techniques Through Learning
“The doubts and questions that I had prior to and during the course were extensively and quickly resolved by the Carestream staff,” he said. “I was surprised by how quickly they responded, it’s like an advisor permanently online.”
When restrictions and mandates from the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Jose Caprarulo had to reinvent himself at work – he needed to deepen his knowledge of non-destructive testing (NDT). He searched the internet intensely but did not find anything serious until he found The Advanced Industrial Radiographic Training Academy, from Carestream NDT and the American Institute of Nondestructive Testing (AINDT).

Digital Radiography Courses
Through a partnership with AINDT and Carestream NDT, our courses are designed to meet the industry’s demanding guidelines for digital radiography qualifications. We provide instruction for companies who want to transition from film radiography to digital radiography. This course is also a great match if you hope to expand your current knowledge of direct digital radiography, or if you plan to introduce a digital system into your inspection program. We provide students with a technical toolbox of understanding they will need to evaluate, qualify, and implement digital technologies into their inspection program.
In the course, you will learn:
- Basic digital radiography principles
- DR system equipment standards
- Calibration of DR equipment and measurement tools
- Radiographic techniques with current technology
- Parameters for software use to evaluate a digital image
- Accurate constraints and capabilities of DR systems
- Image processing methods using phosphor screens
- Image modification to detect defects
- Software analysis processes
- Reporting best practices
Students are immersed in hands-on laboratory exercises, instructor lectures, quizzes, practice exams, software utilization, and much more. A final exam is given at the end of the course to ensure students have a firm command of the course materials.
Upon successful completion of our course, students will have acquired a level of comprehension that will ensure they have the confidence to utilize digital imaging for radiographic nondestructive evaluation. Our training program is routinely recognized as the best in the industry by our students.
