This Month's Introduction
We've noticed lots of lively TOFD discussion recently, so we decided to include some articles and news stories that may enlighten us. If you're already feeling pretty TOFD-enlightened, check out our  interactive TOFD Q&A. Thanks to our sponsor AEA Sonomatic, all participants can register to win  Big Prizes!
This Month's Issue also features other fields of NDT, e.g., x-ray tomography.

NDTnet is a  sponsor of the International Symposium on NDT Contribution to Infrastructure Safety Systems, which takes place in Nov 1999 in Tores Brazil. Take a look at our  preview of NDTISS '99 Abstracts and of course you're invited to visit this interesting symposium. Rolf Diederichs will present A Review of NDT in Civil Engineering on the Internet.
