X-Ray vs GPR for Concrete Structure Imaging

GPR can provide depth/thickness estimation of concrete structures while X-Ray usually can’t. Using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) for concrete structure scanning provides a safe, cost effective and fast alternative to X-Ray! Utility Survey Corp. uses GPR to locate wire mesh, rebar, post-tension cables and embedded utilities within concrete slabs.
