autoradiograph

(ô′tō-rā′dē-ō-grăf′)
n.
An image recorded on a photographic film or plate produced by the radiation emitted from a specimen, such as a section of tissue, that has been treated or injected with a radioactively labeled isotope or that has absorbed or ingested such an isotope. Also called autoradiogram.

au′to·ra′di·o·graph′ic adj.
au′to·ra′di·og′ra·phy (-ŏg′rə-fē) n.

autoradiogram

A photograph produced by exposing undeveloped film to a radiolabeled molecule (e.g. DNA, RNA or protein), typically in the context of a restriction enzyme digested blot.

au·to·ra·di·o·graph

(aw'tō-rā'dē-ō-graf)
Image of the distribution and concentration of radioactivity in a tissue or other substance made by placing a photographic emulsion on the surface of, or in close proximity to, the substance.

autoradiograph

a photographic representation of radioactive areas in a tissue. Tissues labelled with an ISOTOPE (e.g. 14C) are placed on a photographic plate which is irradiated in the same way as photographic film is exposed to light. Radioactive areas can be seen in the photographs.
