Scan Plus continues to see an increase in the use of ground penetrating radar to scan or image concrete slabs. Concrete imaging with ground penetrating radar is typically a very successful process yield results that ensure construction, cutting, drilling, etc. can continue without impact to the facility or project.

This is because you need to have access to both sides of the concrete to perform an x-ray. Ground penetrating radar is a completely different technology.
