Las fallas recientes de tuberías de alto perfil en los Estados Unidos, a focalizado el escrutinio de los entes reguladores en la evaluación y la gestión de la integridad en estos activos envejecidos, a través del mundo. Muchas tuberías viejas, incluyendo aquellas ubicadas en áreas de alta población, tienen geometrías tales como curvaturas de radio pequeño y cambios de diámetro, las cuales han llevado a clasificarlas como 'no inspeccionables'. La herramienta de inspección InVista™ de la empresa Quest Integrity Group es capaz de inspeccionar dichas tuberías y entregar información del 100% de la superficie de ellas, las cuales no pueden ser inspeccionadas por otras herramientas ILI.
