Overview: 

Radio Imaging: Novel Diagnostic Detection

The NTP Radioisotopes SOC Ltd subsidiary of Necsa is responsible for innovation in a range of radiation-based products and services for healthcare, life sciences, and industry. We use radioactive isotopes and radiation science to 'see' images that are unobtainable through other means. Including soft tissue in medical diagnostics; element/mineral distribution in fossils and geological samples; or detecting failures and inclusions in solid objects e.g. metal objects in a non-destructive manner.
