  • Publication number: 20210036384
    Abstract: A non-destructive inspection method of inspecting an inspection target using multiple different types of non-destructive inspection means that include one non-destructive inspection means and at least one other non-destructive inspection means. The method includes determining a marking position on the inspection target in a detection result by the one non-destructive inspection means, causing a device to store the marking position, and fixedly forming a mark on the inspection target corresponding to the marking position. The mark is detectable by the other non-destructive inspection means. The method further includes causing the other non-destructive inspection means to inspect an inspection target including the mark. The method further includes contrasting detection results by the multiple different types of non-destructive inspection means in reference to the mark which is the marking position.
