Automatic optimization of image quality according to the object and free presetting of parameters available

Since the introduction of the world's first digital diagnostic X-ray imaging system FUJIFILM Computed Radiography (FCR) in 1983, Fujifilm has developed imaging processing technologies suitable for objects which have undergone NDT. For DynamIx VU, we have adopted Exposure Data Recognizer (EDR) to automatically adjust the density and our proprietary image processing technology Fujifilm Image Processing (FIP).

With these technologies, it is possible to provide optimized images of any test object and users can customize parameter presets for image processing. Anyone can easily perform image adjustments suitable for the test object. The wide dynamic range ensures a clear depiction of an object of varying thicknesses.

DynamIx inherits the FCR technology of Fujifilm which has been on the frontier of film and digital image resolution technologies. With the wide dynamic range of four or more orders of magnitude, every part of an object — either thick part or thin part — is clearly expressed, free from blown-out highlights, blocked-up shadows or unevenness.

DynamIx VU New Features

DynamIx VU introduces these new features.

DynamIx VU Thickness*2 measurement — the automatic measurement tool makes corrosion tests easier

Focusing on the region of interest and automatically measuring the pipe wall thickness, DynamIx VU Thickness realizes a more efficient and stable inspection.

Different from conventional measurement based on the human eye, Fujifilm's precise image analysis technology automatically detects the inner and outer edges of the pipe wall and measures the wall thickness.*3 Easy but accurate corrosion tests are performed, reducing the need for difficult manual measurements.

  • *2 Available as an option.
  • *3 The measurement method conforms to HOIS (09) RP1.

Long IPs enabling efficient exposure of welded pipe joints

Special inspection screen for images read from long IPs. Efficient examination of welded pipe joints can be conducted in a small number of exposures. Reading images on IPs of up to 152 cm long reduces the number of exposures needed for large jobs.

Computerized contrast normalization according to the ASTM*4 standard

  • *5 Available as an option.
  • *6 Steel, aluminum and titanium, as of August 2012.

Efficient Operations

These features of diagnostic imaging software keep your operations working productively and efficiently.

One click between modes

Reading and inspection are possible on one computer. The software enables reading and inspection to be conducted on a computer, with quick switching between the screens. Access to the image database is also smooth so that an image appears on the inspection screen instantly after it is read. This feature enhances the work efficiency in each process.

More reliable assessment and greater traceability

Companies can use minimized human labor for image quality assessment. Easy input of defect determination results on the special screen.

DynamIx VU newly offers DynamIx VU Judge*7, the automatic image quality assessment. This program calculates the image quality index based on the measured normalized signal-to-noise ratio (NSNR) of an image and assesses if the index conforms to a standard image quality assessment index. This saves the need for measurement and calculation by humans.

In addition to International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards, industry-specific standards are supported as the assessment criteria. The screen to input defect determination results is offered. The results can be recorded on the system.

All assessments are recorded based on who, when and what to enhance traceability. The automatic recording ensures reliability.

Specified-format report creation requires only a little data input. With DynamIx VU Report*7, reports in the specified formats are prepared automatically at the end of an NDT only by inputting test data such as the exposure conditions, results of image quality assessment and of defect determination on the relevant screens.

As a report is created in Microsoft® Word®, it is readily used on other Microsoft® software. The report format or the file format is customizable.

*7 Available as an option.

User Friendliness

DynamIx VU is made with the user in mind. The user-friendly NDT imaging software features include the following advantages.

Simple work status management and data search with the entire test procedure visualized

Interfaces focus on easy viewing and user convenience.

Network and Security

DynamIx VU has a flexible network configuration to create the best workflow for the user environment.

Flexible network configuration and communication to create an optimum workflow environment

The DynamIx system is customizable according to the existing network environment. By managing the inspection image data at multiple sites on a central server, an inspector can access the data anywhere via the network to assess the image.

Linked with Intranet or Major Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Applications, it is possible to send a test request made on an ERP package to each test site or receive a test report. Thus, an efficient workflow improving the NDT process is established.

Strengthened security with user authority control

DynamIx VU controls user access to functions by the administrator. A user's access right to each function can be assigned by the administrator to limit viewing or editing of data to the minimum necessary and strengthen the security. With this function enabled, the system shows only the functions pertinent to the user, offering a simple and easy-to-use screen interface.
