Good book to teach NDE/NDT with wave emphasis?

I am planning a new course which will mainly focus
on using em & acoustic waves in tomographic
and reflectivity mode. I am a geophysicist, so
have that background, but am looking to give it
a NDE/NDT flavor (so as to appeal to engineers as well)

I've been looking around for some books (undergraduate
junior/senior level) but haven't found anything.
I'd appreciate any pointers.

Regards

Re: Good book to teach NDE/NDT with wave emphasis? Roelof:
You asked about books on EM and Acoustic waves applied
in tomographic & reflective modes.

My beginings were also in geophysics and I found the
cross-over to NDT relatively easy (in fact some of the
DSP used in geophysics 25 years ago only recently
found its way into NDT).

About the books: I assume you want application type (not just wave mechanics).

Medical books might be a good source too.
e.g. Handbook of Ultraonic B-scanning in Medicine, by R.M.LUNT, Cambridge Press

On microwaves try:
Microwave nondestructive testing methods / Alfred J. Bahr. -
Series:
Nondestructive testing monographs and tracts, v. 1
Authors:
Bahr, Alfred J., 1935-
Publisher:
New York : Gordon and Breach Science Publishers, c1982.

In ultrasonics there are many. 2 include:

Ultrasonic Imaging: Seeing by sound:

Re: Good book to teach NDE/NDT with wave emphasis? reply of Udo Schlengermann (uschlengermann@krautkramer.de)

Looking to the first replies I noticed that the recommended books were published long time ago, i.e. they cannot include references to modern techniques and applications.

Krautkramers' book
'Ultrasonic Testing of Materials'
was completely revised in 1990,
4th edition, Springer Verlag, New York,
ISBN 0-387-51231-4

kind regards
