Real-time x-ray imaging is done in transmission and the image can be captured using film or an x-ray imaging system. The sample may be rotated to allow various perspectives, within the limitations of the sample size and geometry.
X-ray imaging is a quick, non-destructive analysis technique to look at solder joint quality and the large scale structure of devices.
