In the field of nondestructive testing on defect identification in metallic plates, the shape reconstruction is still an open question. State-of-the-art technologies indeed enable the operator to locate the position of a defect but not its shape. The aim of this paper is to make a contribution to the solution of this side of the problem suggesting a novel methodology based on a neurofuzzy approach. Sugeno's neurofuzzy inferences have been carried out for this purpose, as a first step in this direction. Fuzzy entropy was then exploited to measure how far is a given defect from a well-known depth. A sort of classification based on the depth of a defect has been performed this way.
