Differences between X Ray and Gamma Ray Radiography

1. X-rays have larger wavelength whereas Gamma rays have shorter wavelength.

2. X rays has less penetration power. Gamma rays has high penetration power.

3. X-rays are used for components having thickness up to 62mm. Gamma rays are used for more thickness components.

4. In x-rays, only one component can be examined at a time while in Gamma rays, many components can be examined at a time.

5. For X-rays Radiography, equipment is larger in size whereas for Gamma rays Radiography, equipment is smaller in size.

6. X-rays radiography is more intensity and faster as comapred to gamma ray radiography.
