Public Visual Inspection
Welcome to [NDT Inspection Portal]’s visual inspection group, a place for professionals to connect and discuss the latest techniques and technologies in visual inspection.
Visual inspection is a specialized field within non-destructive testing (NDT) and inspection that involves the evaluation of components, structures, and materials using visual inspection techniques to ensure their safety and reliability. It is an important aspect of ensuring the safety of personnel and equipment in various industries, including manufacturing, construction, and engineering.
Visual inspection involves the use of specialized equipment and techniques to evaluate the condition and performance of components, structures, and materials, such as magnifiers, boroscopes, and other optical inspection tools. It may involve the use of other NDT methods, such as ultrasonic testing, radiographic testing, and magnetic particle inspection, to identify any potential issues or defects, such as cracks, porosity, or corrosion. Visual inspection is often regulated by codes and standards, such as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards, to ensure the safety and reliability of components, structures, and materials.
Our member group offers a platform for sharing knowledge and best practices on visual inspection and its applications in various industries. Join our community of experts from around the world and be a part of the conversation on advancing the practice of visual inspection and its applications in the field of NDT and inspection. Whether you are new to visual inspection or an experienced professional, you’ll find valuable resources and a welcoming community in our group.

Usually this is a task which all Full Matrix Capture systems should do. So you should check with companies selling systems doing this.
eddyfi is now distributing the M2M series of PAUT systems which offer FMC abd as far as I know they offer postprocessing with CIVA (M2M always used a user interface for their PAUT machines based on parts of CIVA).
As you are from Germany check with IzfP in Saarbruecken, they also worked a lot on this topic for decades. Same is as far as i know for BAM in Berlin. I just came across a PhD-Thesis describing Ray-Tracing – Quantitative Evaluation of Ultrasonic Wave Propagation in Inhomogeneous Anisotropic Austenitic Welds using 3D Ray Tracing Method. The author Sanjeevareddy Kolkoori has a lot of experience with 3D datasets in Simulation as well in display, and he worked on UT as well as CT even in 3D-Backscatter-X-Ray. Check with the DGzfP, they had some interesting conferences on that topic. In Researchgate you may find more papers from him and the relevant BAM researchers.
