The article discusses the emerging X-ray applications and trends in high-energy X-ray nondestructive testing. It states that nondestructive and inspection using high-energy X-ray technology, also known as high-energy radiography, has begun in the 1950s with the first commercially linear accelerators. Furthermore, it explains that since its origin, X-ray imaging, has been developed to convert to digital detectors, mainly for kilovolt energy X-ray systems.
