Non-destructive materials testing examines a variety of materials and components for the presence of potential flaws and defects through non-intrusive measures. 
The terms NDT (non-destructive testing) and NDE (non-destructive examinations) in materials testing cover a variety of examinations: radiography, ultrasonic, magnetic particle, eddy current, dye penetrant and visual testing. Through the effective use of various non-destructive testing techniques, clients may identify potential areas of concern prior to a system failure developing.
