Paper Abstract

In 1975, nuclear scattering radiography was introduced as a new method giving three dimensional information 1. In a first part we shown the main characteristics and advantages by comparison with the conventional radiography. Various ways of using high energy proton beams for radiography have been considered and tried in the last decade. They relied mostly on the following mechanisms of beam attenuation : absorption by nuclear interaction ; Coulomb scattering. Computerized tomography can be considered with the proton beams treated like X-rays beams : like with X-rays projection, measurements under a considerable number of angles are necessary to obtain tomographic information.
