In the present work some methodical aspects of X-ray detection of wheat kernels are presented. Part of the work describes the optimal kernel orientations using a special X-ray instrument attachment. The problem of the correct arrangement of a wheat grain sample for X-ray test is considered. New technical approach - solutions and methods - is suggested for the maximum detection leveln of internal mechanical damage of wheat grain by means of roentgenography.
