X-ray technology is used by museums worldwide for art restoration and research, with excellent imaging results. It is an important tool for the authentication, restoration, screening, classification, and analysis of most kinds of artifacts, including paintings, fabrics, sculptures, and metal.
Valuable information about patterns or inscriptions can be gained from corroded metals that, in terms of restoration, have passed the point of no return.
Hidden or altered paintings covered by paintings of a more recent date can be identified and examined without even touching the surface. Hidden information in paintings can be rendered visible through their different chemical contents utilizing X-ray inspection methods.
The conservator is able to identify otherwise hidden damage and complex combinations of different materials and techniques before the restoration work begins.
