This Month's Introduction

Table of Contents

In this month's issue we provide 19 Papers of Radiographic Testing that were presented at the 8th European Conference on NDT. The 8th ECNDT was held in June 17-21, 2002, in Barcelona Spain. We wish to thank authors for their co-operation.

For future issues we will continue the review of the 8th ECNDT papers. Authors who would like to include their papers in this review please see our Note.
