film

 [film]
1. a thin layer or coating.
2. a thin sheet of material (e.g., gelatin, cellulose acetate) specially treated for use in photography or radiography; used also to designate the sheet after exposure to the energy to which it is sensitive.
bite-wing film an x-ray film with a protruding tab to be held between the upper and lower teeth, used for a bite-wing radiograph of oral structures.
gelatin film, absorbable a sterile, nonantigenic, absorbable, water-insoluble coating used as an aid in surgical closure and repair of defects in the dura mater and pleura and as a local hemostatic.
spot film a radiograph of a small anatomic area obtained either by rapid exposure during fluoroscopy to provide a permanent record of a transiently observed abnormality, or by limitation of radiation passing through the area to improve definition and detail of the image produced. See also spot-film radiography.
x-ray film film sensitized to x-rays, either before or after exposure.
Cross-sectional view of radiographic film. The bulk of the film is the base. The emulsion contains the diagnostic information. From Bushong, 2001.

x-ray film

See x-ray.

x-ray film

A special photographic film with a sensitive emulsion layer that blackens in response to the light from intensifying screens. The emulsion has silver halide crystals immersed in gelatin. Single-emulsion film has the emulsion on one side of the cellulose base. It is used for digital, mammographic, and extremity imaging, in which high detail is necessary. Duplitized film has the emulsion on both sides of the cellulose base. It is used for general-purpose radiological studies.

film changing device
enables the radiographer to change films quickly when a series of shots is being used, e.g. angiography.

a film lacking in radiographic contrast.
gelatin film
a sterile, nonantigenic, absorbable, water-insoluble coating used as an aid in surgical closure and repair of defects in the dura mater and pleura and as a local hemostatic.
film label
details of the animal examined and when and where the examination took place. Usually made on the x-ray by photographic means or by using radiopaque tape.
film marker
any device, usually lead letters, placed on the film to indicate which part of the animal was examined and the projection used.
nonscreen film
film for getting very fine detail, used without a cassette and requiring long exposure time. This film is now banned in some parts of the world.
plain film
an x-ray film taken without contrast medium or other special effects. Often an exploratory or scout film.
spot film
a radiograph of a small anatomic area obtained (1) by rapid exposure during fluoroscopy to provide a permanent record of a transiently observed abnormality, or (2) by limitation of radiation passing through the area to improve definition and detail of the image produced.
standard film
fine-grain, medium-speed with wide tolerance for exposure times.
x-ray film

This increase in efficiency enabled a substantial reduction in x-ray exposure levels without compromising image quality, and x-ray film manufacturers moved quickly to develop x-ray film that was sensitized to green light.
Moreover, the costs and retrieval difficulties inherent with X-ray film are eliminated.
Production of X-ray film consumes as much as one-fifth of all silver consumed by industry worldwide.
