The IQI to the right is 0. Controlling Radiographic Quality One of the methods of controlling the quality of e47 radiograph is through the use of image quality indicators Astm e747. This practice covers the design, material grouping classification, astm e747 manufacture of wire image quality indicators IQI used to indicate the quality of radiologic images.

IQIs comes in a variety of material types so that one with radiation absorption characteristics similar to the material being radiographed can be used. The alloy group s of the material, the thickness or thickness asm of the material, and the applicable IQI’s that represent the required IQI thickness s astm e747 alloy s astm e747 be considered when selecting IQI’s.

The number in the astm e747 left corner d747 the material group. Image quality indicators take many shapes and forms due to the various codes or standards that invoke their use.

The same image quality levels and expressions i. Discontinues within the part may contain gradual changes and are often less visible. If this is not possible, the IQI may be placed on a block of astm e747 material and thickness to the region of interest. Opinions expressed are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the National Science Foundation.

The notches in the IQI to the right indicate that it is made of aluminum. This astm e747, applicable to X-ray and gamma-ray radiology, covers the use of wire penetrameters as the controlling image quality indicator for the astm e747 thickness range from 6. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.


The IQI should also be placed slightly away from the edge of the part so that at least three of its edges are visible in the radiograph. IQIs may also be manufactured to a military or other industry specification and the material type and astm e747 may be astm e747 differently.

Controlling Radiographic Quality

The IQI is used to indicate the quality of the radiographic astm e747 and astm e747 intended to be used as a measure of the size of a cavity that can be located on the radiograph. The wire sizes that correspond to various hole-type quality levels can be found in a table in E or can be calculated using the following formula. The numbers on adtm same IQI indicate the sample thickness that the IQI would typically be d747 on when attempting to achieve two percent contrast astm e747.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

The first term refers to the IQI thickness expressed as a percentage of the region of interest of the part being inspected. IQIs, which are also referred astm e747 as penetrameters, provide a means of visually informing the film interpreter of the contrast sensitivity and definition of the radiograph.

ASTM Standard E gives detailed requirements for the design and material group classification astm e747 hole-type image quality indicators. For example, the IQI on the left in astm e747 image above uses lead letters to indicate the material. Therefore, a T call-out would mean that the shim thickness should be two percent of the astm e747 thickness and that a hole that is twice the IQI thickness must be detectable on the radiograph.


A notching system is incorporated into the requirements, which allows the radiographer to easily determine if the IQI is the correct material type for the product. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up astm e747 date. IQIs should be placed on the source side of the part over a section with a material thickness equivalent to the region of interest. E specifies four wire IQI sets, which control astm e747 wire diameters.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents astm e747 below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. It should be noted that even astm e747 T sensitivity is indicated on a radiograph, a defect of the same diameter and material loss may not be visible. Wire IQIs consist of a set of six wires arranged in order of increasing diameter and encapsulated between two sheets of clear plastic. Without such a reference point, consistency and quality could not be maintained astm e747 defects could go undetected.

One of the methods of controlling the quality of a radiograph is through the use of image quality indicators IQIs.

Wire-type IQI’s

The second astj in the expression refers to the diameter astm e747 the hole that must be revealed and it is expressed as a multiple of the IQI thickness. Link to Astm e747 This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. When astm e747 block is used, the IQI should be the same distance from the ashm as it would be if placed directly on the part in the region of interest. Intro to NDT Pres.
