Resumen

In recent years, with the rise of digital technologies and the concurrent demise of related analog instrumentation, researchers in the field of cultural heritage have faced significant new challenges implementing digital solutions.

Specifically, this shift has prompted the use of new protocols for the application of radiology in the study of art works.. However, due to this change, there has been a return to using older film formats, which is one of the problems that has already been solved using an industrial-type analogical system that allowed large-format X-ray support, and that was able to adapt to almost any surface.

Therefore, this study attempts to rectify the limits of digital X-ray techniques by using telemetry X-ray techniques. At the Laboratory of Documentation and Registration (IRP, or Institute for the Heritage Restoration), based at the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia (UPV), Spain, mobile telemetry X-ray equipment has been designed and implemented that allows the adaptation of large-size pictorial works.
