The use of RTR is increasing due to a reduction in the cost of the equipment and resolution of issues such as the protecting and storing digital images.
Since RTR is being used increasingly more, these educational materials were developed by the North Central Collaboration for NDT Education (NCCE) to introduce RTR to NDT technician students.

For inorganic matter and for older materials, isotopes of other elements, such as potassium, uranium, and strontium, are used.

Olympus Mons, for example, is not only the largest shield volcano on Mars, but the largest in the Solar System. Everest – is 8,848 m (29,029 ft) in height, Olympus Mons stands some 22 km (13.6 mi or 72,000 ft) tall. Cohen and his colleagues used radioscopic dating techniques, which are commonly used to determine the age and eruption rate of volcanoes on Earth.
For inorganic materials, such as rocks containing the radioactive isotope rubidium, the amount of the isotope in the object is compared to the amount of the isotope's decay products (in this case strontium).For over 10 years we at WDNT have developed and presented an unofficial DRTR (Digital Real Time Radioscopy) curriculum to hundreds of students.WNDT continually encouraged the American Society for Non-Destructive Testing governing committees to update the RT (Radiographic Testing) curriculum to allow for separate certified training in DRTR In 2004 WNDT offered a suggested topical outline at the ASNT conference.In other words, with RTR, the lighter, brighter areas represent thinner sections or less dense sections of the test object.
Real-time radiography is a well-established method of NDT having applications in automotive, aerospace, pressure vessel, electronic, and munition industries, among others.On Earth, the majority of volcanism occurs as a result of plate tectonics, which are driven by convection in the Earth’s mantle.
