Title: A survey of imaging systems for materials and objects in containers

Radiation imaging can be useful to evaluate the contents of containers; Passive imaging i.e., gamma sources, neutron sources, hydrogen near to a neutron source. Active imaging i.e., Transmission radiography shows high density material; Neutron coincidences indicate fissionable material; Time of Flight and die-away time are important. These technologies may be most useful in confirming ABSENCE of an item.
