Is it possible to inspect ducting for holes from inside? Or is this a sci-fi rea

I suspect that my HVAC ducting in the house might have holes. Is there any technology that can be used to inspect the ducting and find at least the biggest holes by using something that goes inside the ducting? Or doing it any other way short of ripping up floors and ceilings to visually inspect from the outside?

Thx

There are cameras that can be shoved into ducts but since most ducts are sealed on the outside by taping or puttying over cracks it will be difficult to spot where a leak might. From the inside every joint will look like a crack that could leak. Holes in the ducting or sections that have come disconnected should be easy to spot.
