Within the Petten Neutron Radiography Services (PNRS) a PC based image analysis system is operational. The system is available among others for deriving optical density profiles from digitised images with very high speed. Because of the many advantages inherent in such a system, it is wise to consider the replacement of the existing computer controlled travelling microdensitometer. Therefore both systems are evaluated in terms of specifications; a number of optical density profiles of transversal fuel pin scans and the effect of dimensional analysis routines are compared. Likewise resolution parameters, derived from a neutron radiographic knife edge, are considered.
