The method to determine the cause of fires, equipment failure, plumbing leaks and the
like often require the destructive examination of evidence. In many cases the destructive examination is done ‘blind’; that is, the evidence is torn apart without prior knowledge of what to expect inside. Evidence is often x-rayed to guide the examination, but this requires time-consuming transportation to a testing facility. As destructive examination proceeds, more x-rays may be required, adding even more time and expense to the process. To increase the efficiency of the evidence examination process, Romualdi Davidson has purchased a Golden Engineering XR200 x-ray source and a Logos Evry imaging system. Now RDA can generate x-rays of evidence before and during the destructive examination process. This capability increases the efficiency and effectiveness of evidence examination.
