Question X-raying magnesium alloys?

Anyone have any previous experience of X-raying magnesium alloys?

Who's offering to do it, I'd have thought you'd need a CT scan so you could have a 3d image of the wheel to examine. Scanned all kinds of crap when I worked at my last place but never a wheel, unfortunately I don't have access any more.

Nobody offering as yet, just about to re-shoe my ex rally stage 15s and thought now that I am not driving 30mph roads everywhere because Im further out I should probably check the integrity

Unfortunately its not a standard format of image you can view on a normal PC, you could buy several new sets of wheels for the price of that software. Alternatively put them in a suitcase with something explosive the next time you fly and they'll scan them for free lol.
