Is 3D view of a weld flaw no longer an option?

Does anybody agrees that the 3D view of a flaw no longer an option because there are better equipments available providing with adequate information? TOFD & Pulse Echo methods in terms of flaw sizing are good interesting areas. From embedded view point, if there should be a software which can provide with a 3D view of the flaw whatever it’s orientation and shape, Would it be any use to NDT?

The Physics is the existing TOFD and Pulse echo methods, but I strongly believe that the data produced from those methods contains all information I need for 3D flaw but the algorithm I am after is to pin point the required data for sizing the flaw. Investigation should be in Neural Network and the development of a mathematical model in embedded application.

Please comment on the above assumptions.
