Radiographic images

ByJanet Lang, Andrew Middleton, Janet Ambers, Tony Higgins

As X-rays cannot be perceived by eye, the X-ray image must be registered on a suitable material to make it visible. The image may be recorded permanently on photographic film or paper. Images have also been recorded using xeroradiography plates or they can be viewed in real-time on fluorescent or sensitive screens, perhaps linked to a monitor or digital recording system.
