    The main advantage is that you know where you at into your the drum at any time; during coking process, either coke or foam, which let you be prepared for worse case scenario. Back-scatter is good to differentiate between coke or foam, but you won’t know how are you doing on either one until being close enough (+/- 3 ft) from the source. The best is a combination of both technologies.
