X-ray’s aren’t just for bones, it also allows us to see inside concrete decking


JOPLIN, MO – X-ray technology may make you think of diagnosing health problems, but it’s also used to pinpoint construction issues.

The x-ray scan allows them to see inside the concrete decking.

The west side ramp to the parking lot was closed last March due to safety concerns.
