Re: pscan
pscan is a mechanised UT system from FORCE-Denmark (trade name for 'projection scan')
tofd is 'time of flight diffraction' technique, a method to detect flaws by their diffraction
signal rather than by reflection.

So, one is a system, the other is a method.
pscan can "tofd", so can many others.
